The first Nigerian Food Safety And Investment Forum is to hold between February 7-8, 2017 at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
At the occasion, an opportunity to learn more about a new concept in tomato processing will be made available by the Food Safety and Investment Forum.
Reports say this is part of the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation-UNIDO-EU-FGN Food Safety Capacity Building Programme for Nigeria..
According to a statement signed by UNIDO Representative & Director Regional Office, Abuja, Chukwuma Ezedinma, the forum will bring together high-level representatives and stakeholders engaged in food safety governance and the food related industries, to address the global governance of food regulatory systems and showcase models and best food safety practices.
It will also focus on new possibilities for partnerships and seek further improvements in food safety and national food safety regulatory systems.
The forum will consist of three technical sessions-National and International Food Safety Governance; Nigeria Value Chain Improvements; and Industry Engagement, Investment and Technology in Food Safety.
Ezedinma explained that it is expected that participants will articulate the correlation between latest developments in national policies, as well as, regulatory frameworks, and challenges in food safety.
“As a result, they will be able to identify best practices, further need and areas of industry-wide cooperation in capacity building to ensure safe food at a global level.”
