EURO COOP, CELCAA and UECBV, in cooperation with DG SANTE, have the pleasure to invite you to a high-level conference on “Food authenticity and integrity” which will take place on Friday 24th June 2016 in Brussels. Programme is available here

The event will offer Competent Authorities, Food Business Operators, and Scientists the opportunity to explain how they are concretely and effectively tackling the food authenticity and integrity within their respective activities.

Objectives of this high-level conference are to show what the real conditions are within the food chain production and to uncover ongoing initiatives, experiences, and processes aiming at meeting consumers’ expectations in terms of authenticity and integrity across the food chain. It should also allow better knowledge sharing and transfering between all the links in the food chain and ultimately reinforce consumer trust and confidence.

Registration is open !!

CELCAA Secretary-General, Pascale Rouhier, said “From the start, the EU agri-food chain has been a strong supporter of an ambitious EU-Japan FTA. I hope that expectations from the sector will be met in terms of tariffs elimination, and the removal of non-tariff barriers impacting EU exports. We also welcome the fact that Japan has agreed to recognise the EU system of Geographical Indications (GIs) to protect our agri-food products from imitations. Such a deal could result in a significant increase in our exports of high-value added products to Japan”.
