In the past the functions of food safety, food quality, authenticity, consumer expectations and trade have been viewed as separate components of a food supply chain, however, transgressions for any one of these functions impacts on the viability of the food product.
Food Integrity 2016 is designed to bring together producers, exporters, importers, regulators and consumers to discuss current issues, emerging trends and mitigation strategies.
The conference focusses on supply chain integrity issues between China and New Zealand. In its broadest sense this refers to the marketing, safety, integrity and logistics of food products. It includes the environment that food producers operate in, and in particular will address concerns of Chinese producers in NZ and those in China wishing to export. The conference will also explore consumer food expectations and the fluid and sometimes fickle way they respond to food issues and food claims.
