Discussion on food safety: how to make meat official controls work for all? | author: Scanpix.lt

On the 15 of October the Lithuanian Presidency, together with the EU Commission and in partnership with the UK Food Standards Agency (FCA) and the European Livestock and Meat Trades Union (UECBV), are organizing a seminar on the modernization of meat inspection “Animals + Humans = One Health”: How To Make Meat Official Controls Work For All?

Representatives from the EU Commission, European Parliament, EU Council, Member States, stakeholders and scientists are invited for discussion how meat controls are working today and what role meat inspection measures play in ensuring high level food safety protection and taking care of animal health and welfare. The participants will also attempt to answer what risks should be covered, how those risks should be controlled and by whom. A specific focus will be given to the cattle sector.

Through the conference delegates will be encouraged to actively participate in debates and focus on positive alternatives to deliver an even better system of meat official controls. A voting system will be put in place to allow each participant to express his/her opinion.
