From 5th to 9th May 2015 I will be in the sunny Asuncion, Paraguay, for a series of conferences about food regulations.
On 5th I will be at the National University, Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy, to present the new EU Regulation on food information to consumer (No 1169/2011), with specific attention for allergens and nutrition declaration. Download the brochure here.
On 7th I will be very pleased to open the II Expo Alimentaria and the first Food Law Conference at the Hotel Excelsior. Paraguay is on the way to review its regulatory framework and to implement a Food Code inspired by EU and US standards: the objective is to ease the export of the national products. My speech will touch some general aspects about the EU and US food regulations, in light of the fact that with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) the two systems are converging on some specific principles, on food allergens labelling and some hints about how the food recalls are managed. You can find the complete program here.
I was invited by ASPATAL (Paraguayan Association of Food Technologists), and I have to deeply thank you Prof. Griselda Miranda Pena for inviting me.
