The 2021 Government Chemist Conference, beginning today, will explore the challenge of ensuring safe food for tomorrow’s world

The Government Chemist Conference 2021 - ‘Safe food for tomorrow’s world’ – is taking place, virtually, on 23 and 24 June 2021.

Originally scheduled for June 2020 and delayed by the pandemic, the conference will outline how food safety, authenticity and sustainability impact on life quality and health outcomes . The event will provide perspectives from policy makers, regulation enforcers, industry and research scientists.

Julian Braybrook, Government Chemist, said, “We are very excited to have national and international experts from across a wide range of disciplines in one event to discuss future challenges in food manufacturing, packaging, retailing and testing to ensure it is safe and consumers can have trust.

In the wake of unprecedented challenges to global industry and supply chain certainty, it is vital that industry, regulators, analysts and beyond understand the impact that such pressing issues can have on global food security, allergenic food testing, food contact materials and food authenticity and sustainability. The Government Chemist Conference in 2021 aims to bring these discussions under one roof and should not be missed by anyone from scientists, to regulators, enforcement agencies, industry and policy makers.”
