Food fact and fiction: separating science from myth
24 Jan 2013 11:00, Webinar
Organised by IFST and Food Manufacture
Does the reporting of GM food topics, nanotechnology and irradiation make you fume with irritation? Do you wish the debate about food science and technology was based on science rather than pseudo-science and prejudice? Then, make a date to attend our free live webinar. This webinar − produced by Food Manufacture in association with the Institute of Food Science & Technology − aims to move the debate about food science and technology onto a more secure scientific footing. It seeks to identify problems and opportunities in the perception and reporting of controversial topics.
Food Standards Agency chief scientist Andrew Wadge will be joined by Sue Davies of consumer organisation Which? plus Nicole Patterson of Leatherhead Food Research to suggest ways in which science can hold more sway – within a context of consumer acceptability.
Each speaker will give a short online presentation followed by a live question and answer session. Andrew Wadge will deal with the regulatory aspects of food science and technology while Sue Davies will offer a consumers' perspective. Nicole Patterson will present research analysing consumers' reaction to the say scientific developments are presented.
