until Thu, July 18, 2024

Welcome to the 6th Thematic Webinar of the EIT Food Alumni Board "Advances in Food Safety Management: Culture, Regulations & Digital Transformation"

In this webinar, we will dive deep into the topic of food safety and its importance in our society.

Food safety is crucial because it directly impacts public health by preventing foodborne illnesses, which can lead to severe health issues and even fatalities. Ensuring food safety protects consumers from harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, and chemical contaminants that can cause acute and chronic diseases. Additionally, maintaining high food safety standards helps build consumer trust in food systems, supports economic stability by reducing healthcare costs and food waste, and ensures compliance with international trade regulations, thereby facilitating global food commerce. Overall, robust food safety practices are essential for safeguarding health, sustaining economic well-being, and maintaining social stability.
