Fourth International Conference on Coexistence between Genetically Modified (GM) and Non-GM based Agricultural Supply Chains (GMCC09)
Topic: The GMCC is a series of biannual international scientific conferences on "Coexistence between genetically modified (GM) and non-GM based agricultural supply chains". GMCC conferences gather the multidisciplinary scientific community involved in researching how agricultural supply chains can adapt to novel regulatory and market-driven coexistence requirements world-wide. GMCC conferences also serve policy-makers to access the latest scientific results and identify future research needs with policy relevance.
Location: Melbourne, Australia
From: 02/12/2009 until: 03/12/2009
Final Trace Conference - How to trace the origin of food?
The European Project, TRACE "Tracing Food Commodities in Europe", is funded through the Food Quality and Safety Priority of the EU Framework VI research programme and has the aim to offer a traceability infrastructure that can trace and confirm the origin of food. This final conference will be dedicated mainly to the TRACE results.
The following topics will be covered:
- Traceability systems
- Systems for verifying geographical origin of food
- Food verification systems
- Traceability and the consumer
- Traceability and the future
The conference leaflet can be found here.
