The Government Chemist is collaborating with IGFS in Queen’s University Belfast, to run a one day conference, ‘Food Allergy – Human, analytical and regulatory implications’.
With a special focus on helping SMEs understand more about food allergy, the conference in Belfast brings together well-known experts in the fields of food allergens, including specialists from the food industry, (both large and small companies, and caterers), researchers, enforcement officers and regulators. This special mix of scientific and practical input to the conference will provide a valuable opportunity to grow your knowledge base, learn from practical experiences, and exchange ideas with peers.
The enforcement perspective will represent both Northern Ireland views, as well as feedback from officers who have prosecuted a landmark manslaughter case in England. There will be a discussion on allergen analysis including new innovations, and reference materials and legal implications.
