Belfast Summit on Global Food Integrity

ASSET 2018 will bring together representatives from international and governmental agencies, the academic and industrial research community, non-governmental organisations and the commercial and technical leaders in the food industry and its supply chain to discuss, debate and provide leadership on tackling a range of serious challenges that face the integrity of our global food supply system.

The Summit will feature a number of high level strategic presentations on key issues by internationally recognised leaders. It will also place a firm emphasis on harnessing the collective knowledge and experience of the delegates to address these challenges through the formulation of policy recommendations to governments and a Summit communique.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organisations (FAO) of the United Nations, amongst a spectrum of respected commentators, the global food chain is under continued threat from an alarming increase in the number of outbreaks of animal/plant pests and diseases, and also food safety events. Such challenges are, to a degree, indicative of an erosion of the integrity of the global food chain, which in itself is a consequence of the knock-on effects of rapid human population growth and urbanisation, along with the resultant pressures on finite resources. The food security challenge is also linked to broader public policy matters such as climate change, increased pollution, environmental degradation and loss of biodiversity, as well as cultural, social, political and demographic changes. It may even be a contributory factor in many past and current conflicts. There can be no global food security without global nutritional security as this impacts on the health and wellbeing of a growing world population.

Opportunities for highlighting the proceedings of the Summit will be exploited including the technical and commercial press, social and digital media, internet, and leading scientific journals.
