Towards sustainable global food safety collaboration

Objective

Guaranteeing the long term availability of safe foods is a global concern that has initiated a large number of activities, including research, policy development and implementation, legislation and training. Extensive information is generated about food safety, but it is fragmented, and not internationally disseminated. The Collab4Safety consortium will establish a global network on food safety with the aim of developing a sustainable coordination platform for exchange of food safety information about research findings, capacity building and policies and facilitate the control and mitigation of existing and emerging food risks. Tried and tested methods will be used to identify problems and gaps in knowledge, resulting in generation of outputs valuable to research managers and interested stakeholders globally. Establishing a permanent structure will contribute to the development of trust between key players and institutions, which is needed to create an international forum for exchange of information and opinions on matters pertaining to food safety in the food and feed chain
