8874995100?profile=RESIZE_400xThe Government Chemist conference, ‘Safe food for tomorrow’s world’ will take place online on 23 and 24 June 2021.

This conference was originally scheduled to take place in June 2020 and was postponed to June 2021 as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic. In view of the ongoing restrictions for public events, we have decided to proceed with this conference as an online event.

The conference will be opened by Gideon Henderson, Chief Scientific Adviser, Defra after a brief introduction by Dr Julian Braybrook, Government Chemist.

Scientists, regulators, enforcement agencies, industry and policy makers are invited to join the Government Chemist on a virtual platform to discuss future challenges in the manufacturing, packaging, retailing and testing of food that is safe and consumers can trust.

The conference programme will include national and international perspectives on assuring food safety and integrity, advances and challenges in allergen testing, the use of science for improved consumer protection and much more.

The programme is being finalised, and this page will be updated as the speakers and titles are confirmed. You can reserve your place at the event now, and you can sign up for alerts to keep up-to-date with changes in the programme.
