Join the Association for International Agriculture and Rural Development (AIARD) for a series of online events from June 8 - June 11, 2020 at 11 am - 12 pm EDT, featuring panel presentations and Q&A.
As the world population increases, so do the opportunities and challenges for ensuring that consumers have access to safe, nutritious foods that are sustainably produced, processed, and delivered to the marketplace. Food that is unsafe threatens the health of populations, harms agricultural value chains, and undermines global social and economic development.
Our four-day digital event series are dedicated to the topic of food safety. We will explore the many dimensions of global food safety – from production to consumption – and how improvements in food safety practices and technologies can help in building nutritious food systems.
