The FAO/WHO/WTO International Forum on Food Safety and Trade

23-24 April 2019
Geneva, Switzerland

Continuing the discussions from the Addis Conference, the Geneva Forum will address the trade-related aspects and challenges of food safety. The food safety priorities set by this Conference will facilitate global collaboration and help ensure that no one is left behind. It will provide an opportunity for participants to explore the challenges and opportunities arising from rapid technological change and digitalization, namely:

  • the use of new technologies in the realm of food safety and trade;
  • how trade in safe food can be facilitated at the borders, and the role of partnerships;
  • harmonizing food safety regulation in a period of change and innovation.

The conference will result in a document summarizing key issues and recommendations from both, the Addis Conference and the Geneva Forum, to better align and coordinate efforts to strengthen food safety systems across sectors and borders.
