12th BfR Consumer Protection Forum: "Improving the Hygiene of Foodstuffs through Decontamination? - Current Situation and Perspectives"

(04.06.2012 - 05.06.2012)

In the past few years, various factors have contributed to the fact that zoonotic agents have gained in significance as causes of disease for man. Zoonoses are infectious diseases that can be passed from animals to humans and vice-versa. As a result, numerous processes (physical, biological and chemical) have been presented with the help of which it is hoped to reduce the bacterial contamination of meat.

At the BfR-Forum in June we will debate with experts as to the current state of knowledge regarding the application of these so-called decontamination processes. In addition to this, the second day will see the focus of observation shift to the consumer. Representatives from every stage of the production chain will discuss possible conclusions, fields of action and solutions.

Event Location: Berlin Marienfelde, BfR Lecture Theatre (Hörsaal BfR)

More detailed information on the programme will be posted shortly on this page.
