TRACEBACK and TCA at the “What’s for Lunch Conference
Interactive conference of a decade of EU-funded research into food integrity.
International conference held on the 20 September 2011 at the European Parliament, Charlemagne Building, Brussels.
Several TRACEBACK project partners partecipated as speakers (University of Parma, Ainia, Parmalat) in the session chaired by Tecnoalimenti.
Food integrity is becoming increasingly important; authenticity, origin of food, geographical location (terroir), traceability and security and safety of food production requires new diagnostic tools and implementation of new information systems.
The What’s for Lunch conference is an event focused upon parliamentary decision makers and it is organised by the coordinators of 8-10 major European research projects which include some of the world’s largest food safety research projects in the areas of microbiology, chemistry and food production technologies. It is worth recalling that at the begining of the last decade the European Parliament specifically requested that the Sixth Framework Programme dedicate part of the specific programme budget to food traceability and integrity. The event will demonstrate what has been done in this respect and what has still to be done to ensure proper food chain integrity and food security.
Thanks to the insights acquired coordinating the Integrated Project TRACEBACK, Tecnoalimenti chaired the session about Traceability of Quality parameters. You can see the recordings of the presentations on the webstreaming site of the European Commission.
