Millions of people fall ill every year and many die as a result of eating unsafe food. Diarrheal diseases alone kill an estimated 1.5 million children annually, and most of these illnesses are attributed to contaminated food or drinking water. Proper food preparation can prevent most food borne diseases. The great majority of people will experience a food or water borne disease at some point in their lives. This highlights the importance of making sure the food we eat is not contaminated with potentially harmful bacteria, parasites, viruses, toxins and chemicals. Over the past half century, the process by which food gets from the farm to the plate has changed drastically. Food contamination that occurs in one place may affect the health of consumers living on the other side of the planet. This means that everyone along the production chain, from producer to consumer, must observe safe food handling practices.
The associated exhibition will run in parallel with the Food Safety Conference and definitely it will offer you the chance to get updated information from companies active in your area of interests.
This is an open event, we welcome and invite you to participate in this prestigious conference to make event as the best Food Safety event in Valencia, Spain.
The scientific program paves a way to gather visionaries through the research talks and presentations and put forward many thought provoking strategies. Euro Food Safety 2016 will schedule and coordinate all meetings with our Editorial board members and other experts in the field of Food Safety, Food borne illness, Food toxicology, Food adulteration, Food Microbiology across the world.
Track 1: Challenges in Food Safety
Sometimes foods we love and count on for good health are contaminated with germs that cause sickness and can be deadly for certain people. More progress is needed to protect people and reduce food borne sickness in America. Climatic changes, food standards are expected to put pressure on food safety policy. Food chain globalization and climate change are the cause to increase incidence of food borne diseases and food toxins.

Track 11: Entreprenuer Investment Meet
Modern food production is defined by sophisticated technologies. These include many areas. Agricultural machinery, originally led by the tractor, has practically eliminated human labor in many areas of production whereas the beverage industry refers to the industry that produces drinks. Beverage production can vary greatly depending on the beverage being made. Food and beverage marketing brings together the producer and the consumer through a chain of marketing activities. The marketing of even a single product can be a complicated process involving many producers and companies.
The 3rd European Food Safety & Standards Conference (Euro Food Safety-2016) to be held in Valencia, Spain from October 24-25, 2016.
Euro Food Safety -2016 is the platform to gain or share the knowledge in the new technological developments in the field of Food safety. This conference brings together professors, researchers, and practitioners in all the areas of food related streams and provides an international forum for the spreading of approved research results, new ideas and practical developments. We are honoured to invite you all to attend and register for the conference.
Food-borne disease remains a real and formidable problem in both developed and developing countries, causing great human suffering and significant economic losses. Dangerous pathogens and contaminants in food are on the increase as travel and tourism grow. Up to one third of the population of developed countries may be affected by food-borne diseases each year, and the problem is likely to be even more widespread in developing countries, where food and water-borne diarrheal diseases kill an estimated 2.2 million people each year, most of them children. In 2007 it was reported that in the United States, foodborne diseases result in 37.2 million illnesses, 228,744 hospitalizations, and 2,612 deaths annually.
The food safety testing market is projected to reach $4.07 billion by 2018. Pathogens have been the leading cause of foodborne poisoning or illness. In 2012, pathogen testing dominated the food safety testing market in which salmonella testing accounted for the major share. Increasing food contamination and outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) poisoning in Germany is expected to increase E. coli testing in the market. Germany dominated the market and is projected to be the fastest growing European food safety testing market followed by United Kingdom.
Importance & Scope:
Food Safety-2016 is designed to address all food safety sectors from farm to consumption and related scientific communities with respect to food control and hygiene. It shall provide with all levels of awareness, expertise and proactive solutions to create global impact in this field. It shall incorporate new advances and discoveries in food safety procedures in all related food, beverage, catering industry business model. It targets to Influence Industries to minimize losses and maximize their yield and profit through the application of strategic techniques while adapting to novel food safety techniques. It provides emphasis on Environmental, Public and General Consumer Health.
There is a demand of more safe systems of obtaining, producing, distribution and consumption of food, which requires more regulation and infrastructure at all levels of Food supply chains. It’s very important to determine how the growth of Populations and changing lifestyles has brought great demand for more safe food, with new and fast spreading food borne illnesses globally. There is an importance of developing all safe food procedures transparent for the consumers.
“Keep Food Safe!-Prevention is better than cure!”is our prime quote and goal of our conference.
In Europe, rapid technology market for contaminant testing has been increasing as they are less time consuming.In a continent like Europe, scope of such field is immense and huge due to an influence of many regulatory bodies in food and allied industries.Multicultural metropolitan society that has different food related businesses around the world.Research and innovation at all levels of food and retail industry. There is easier access for food safety professionals all around the globe. Presence of Institutes, Companies and Societies like:
· Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH)
· Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC)
· Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH)
· Food Safety System Certification 22000 (FSSC 22000)
· International Organization for Standardization (ISO 22000)
· National Sanitation Foundation (NSF)
These provide different standard certifications and awards after training to all levels of sectors engaged with agriculture, aquaculture, food and beverage industries, catering, retail, and import and export businesses worldwide.Horse meat scandal in UK and milk and many more food scandals in China have created more importance to food safety.We can form a bridge with industry peers, share knowledge in plenary and break-out sessions.Spread of genetic food culture has rose the questions of more intense ways to handle “genetic food safety”Foodomics, Novel foods and food Nano-materials and new methodologies that are incorporating research from advanced analytical techniques (mainly omics tools), and bioinformatics are combined. The development of genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics has given rise to extraordinary opportunities for increasing our understanding about different food safety issues that can now be addressed by Foodomics.Companies and Governments lose in billions, if food borne illness is widespread and food scams and scandals are exposed. This may also lead to bankruptcy and company shut down.
The food safety testing market is projected to grow reach to $4,068.8 million by 2018. In 2012, Germany was the largest market for food safety testing and it is projected to be the fastest growing market in Europe. In 2012, U.K. was second largest market followed by the France. In 2012, contaminant testing in fruit and vegetable was the largest segment in European market.
In 2012, pathogen testing dominated European food safety testing market followed by GMOs testing. Pathogen safety testing in food samples was dominated by salmonella testing as the largest segment. The leading market players have been using strategies such as new product/service launch to detect the presence of contaminants in the food samples to strengthen their position in the market.
· More than 200 diseases are spread by food. Diarrhoeal diseases alone kill an estimated 1.5 million children annually.
· Foodborne diseases are increasing worldwide due to increasing food chains locally and globally.
· About 75% of the new infectious diseases affecting humans over the past 10 years were caused by bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that started in animals and animal products. Many of these diseases in people are related to the handling of infected domestic and wild animals during food production.
· Food sector contribution to the economic sector of the UK is about 96.1 billion pounds. (BRC- standards 2012)
· The UK food industry has shown resilience during the economic downturn, with the agri-food sector contributing £96.1 billion a year to the UK economy. And while the total value of UK food and drink exports fell slightly in 2012 to £18.2 billion, this was still £5.6 billion more than in 2005. The industry also has ambitious plans to grow 20% by 2020.
· The value of compliance is not just about avoiding fines, or even shutdowns. And the cost of compliance is not just an investment in preventive public relations to avoid negative press and the damage it can cause.
· Today, not only regulators but retailers and operators, as well, care about compliance.
· Consumers care about compliance: Unless they trust the brand, they won’t buy the product.
· If retailers, operators, and consumers see value in compliance, the distributor or manufacturer has the opportunity to promote the value of their compliance efforts.
