The Food Packaging Forum is holding a session on scientific controversies around the safety of food contact materials (FCMs) at the 2014 European Symposium on Food Safety taking place May 7-9, 2014 in Budapest, Hungary. The symposium is organized by the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP). The session will take place in the afternoon of May 8, 2014. During the session John Peterson Myers, director of Environmental Health Sciences will speak on chemical safety and innovation opportunities offered by Green Chemistry. Subsequently, Benoit Schilter from the Nestlé Research Center will provide insights into food packaging safety from a food manufacturer perspective. The session will be closed by Konrad Grob from the Official Food Safety Authority of the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland, discussing gaps between requirements and reality in the regulatory enforcement of FCM safety. Another session of interest taking place at the Budapest conference addresses the paradox of FCMs being both a source of food protection and food contamination. The session includes speakers from the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration, the Technical University of Dresden, Germany and the Official Food Safety Authority of the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland. The European Symposium on Food Safety is IAFP’s annual European event. It provides a forum for discussion on the latest developments and techniques in food science and safety.
