Horsegate – The Fallout from this Incident Conference & Exhibition

1 Day Events
22 Oct

The appearance of Horse DNA in meat products, ready meals and school food does show a sad affair on the value that consumers, food processors and retailers place on food in a society nowadays. Importantly, it also serves as an illustration of the risks inherent in placing too much reliance on an increasingly complex food supply chain to meet everybody needs.

This conference will shed some light on what lessons have been learnt and what changes need to made going forward to ensure that a repeat of such an incident hopefully does not occur again?
