Managing day to day food safety can be a challenge in itself, however, trying to identify shifts in food safety risks can be even harder. In today’s rapidly changing world it can be difficult to identify trends and patterns and to sort the true risk from the newest fashionable threat. Understanding the changes in the environment and looking at the shift in agricultural practises and food production can provide a window into the future and potential emerging risks.               
In the presentation, Jasmine Lacis Lee will explore a wide range of food safety risks, old and new, and most importantly what tools there are to identify potential changes in food safety risks to your business. She will examine global patterns, the impact of climate change and the advent of new challenges for the food industry.
