Particularly as Dr Friedrich Luedeke, Senior Expert / Training at GlobalGAP will be speaking on 'Food Safety in the Milling Industry: Certification of Primary Production – The way ahead?'
In a little more depth:
"At farm level the scene is set for food safety and product quality in the milling industry. According to Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 28 January 2002, every farmer is a ‘food and/or feed business operator’, which means he or she is responsible for ensuring that the requirements of food/feed law are met within the food business under his control. This includes all aspects of primary production. Covering the selection of the field, use of water, fertilizer and plant protection products, but also harvest and storage.

"These are the legal requirements within the EU, but what about reality? Surely, Cross Compliance (Verification of the implementation of certain legal requirements by the EU) has had a great impact at farm level, on the other hand only a very limited number of farms are inspected. Also how about the rest of the world?

"Certification at farm level is today the normal procedure in the Fruit and Vegetable sector. For more than 10 years GLOBALG.A.P. has provided the Standards for the implementation of Good Agricultural Practice around the globe. This also includes Combinable Crops. Reducing the risk via certified suppliers - the way ahead."

Not to be missed.

But there's no point squawking about it once tickets run out!
