Welcome

Welcome to the Centre for ASsured, SafE and Traceable food (ASSET) at Queen's University, Belfast.  Launched in January 2009, ASSET is a new Research Centre within the Institute for Global Food Security that is based in three Schools - the School of Biological Sciences; the School of Planning, Architecture and Civil Engineering (SPACE) and Queen's University Management School. 

ASSET's Vision:

  • A food supply chain which is safe, transparent, rapidly traceable and sustainable;
  • Innovative, state-of-the-art scientific techniques that will create a niche food forensic strength to develop a new dimension in animal and human health, food safety monitoring and traceability;
  • A major All Island research centre that brings together four key research groups on the Island.
   

The Institute for Global Food Security are delighted to announce that the 2nd Food Integrity and Traceability Conference (ASSET 2014) will take place at Queen’s University Belfast during 8 – 10 April 2014

This Project is supported by the Department for Employment and Learning through its "Strengthening the all-Island Research Base" initiative.
