  • Prioritizing Hazards in Infant Foods

    Organized by: Modelling and Risk Analysis PDG & International Food Protection Issues PDG

    The webinar will address how food producers can prioritize hazards and rank risks in infant foods that differ in ingredients, process treatment and storage conditions. In addition, the consumer perception of risks associated with infant foods will be compared with experts’ opinion and outputs of science-based risks assessments. This webinar has been developed in the framework of the European project SAFFI. SAFFI aims at developing an integrated approach to enhance the identification, assessment, detection and mitigation of safety risks raised by microbial and chemical hazards along infant food chains.

    Learning Objectives:
    By attending this webinar, the participants will
    -be introduced to online available tools to identify microbial hazards and rank risks.
    -learn how different microorganisms can be grouped with respect to their resistance
    -understand how consumer perception differs from science-based risks assessment and experts’ opinions.
