Deliverables SAFE FOODS


Major Deliverables

  • First comparative, interoperable, and user-friendly databases for profiling of foods produced by different breeding approaches and production systems.
  • Development of a user-friendly, transparent, and easy to use working procedure for identification of new emerging chemical and microbial risks in food production chains.
  • New approaches for risk modelling of food contaminants and natural toxins, and criteria development for comparative risk analysis including validation of the statistics.
  • Analysis of food safety risk perceptions of experts, regulators, consumers and other stakeholders regarding novel and conventional foods including labelling and nutritional aspects and validation of the statistics.
  • Analysis of uncertainties in risk assessment and identification of best practice in communicating risk uncertainty with the public by linking it also to labelling and nutritional issues/policies.
  • Identification of consumers preference for risk analysis strategies for foods across Europe including labelling and nutritional influences.
  • User-friendly guidance for evaluation and governance of systemic food risks showing how labelling and nutritional aspects are included.
  • Realistic , practical, and cost-effective recommendations for improvement in risk management procedures and institutional structure including their influences/links to labelling and nutrition.
  • New Risk Analysis Approach for food safety management that integrates risk assessment of human health, consumer preferences and values, impact analysis of socio-economical aspects and nutrition as well as labelling issues, and is based on qualitative and quantitative methodologies.

Characteristics of the New Risk Analysis Approach

  • Integration of assessment of human health, nutrition and labelling aspects of foods with consumer preferences and values.
  • Active consumer participation in the various stages of the risk analysis process.
  • Improved functional and structural risk management procedures also link to labelling and nutritional issues/policies.
  • Improved risk communication with consumers throughout the process of risk analysis and labelling as well as nutritional aspects.
  • Pan European applicability.
