The Biotoxins in food safefood networks will hold a one day conference on the 29th November 2012 themed around ‘Mycotoxins and plant toxins: Emerging threats and their impact on feed and food safety’ at the Hilton hotel, Belfast.
Mycotoxins and plant toxins in food and feed are considered a growing concern in food safety. The past few decades have witnessed significant scientific advances in this field especially in relation to limits and regulations for these toxins in food and feed as well as novel detection techniques for analysis and screening purposes. The widespread occurrence of these toxins and the threats posed by them demands the attention of the Biotoxins scientific community.
This conference will bring together researchers, industry and regulators across the Island of Ireland and further afield to discuss key topics of interest and concerns relating to the impact of emerging issues in relation to mycotoxins and plant toxins.
