FoodManufacture.co.uk and the Institute of Food Science & Technology are sponsoring a free public webinar on food science and technology next Thursday, 24 January 2013 at 11:00 a.m. GMT. From their description:
This free webinar 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 − such as GM, nanotechnology and irradiation – and suggest ways in which science can hold more sway – within a context of consumer acceptability.
Aimed at anyone who welcomes a debate based on the science rather than mere prejudice, the webinar will be particularly useful to food sector communicators, food science and technology policy makers, and government science policy makers.
