Event description

Description

New Zealand has a robust food safety system that is based on solid scientific evidence and puts the safety of consumers first.

This lecture will look at what food safety means to different parts of the community, and what happens when contaminants enter the food supply.


Topic 1: Does trust in the food safety system mean the same for different parts of society?

Consumers have a wide variety of views and awareness of the food safety system. There's a role for food producers, food businesses and regulators to engage with consumers meaningfully about the concerns they may have. We're making some strides towards increased transparency and responsiveness, but there is more work to be done.

To complicate matters, different parts of the community have different demands — with some segments having larger ‘trust deficits’ than others. How do we — those who work in the food system — address this issue and find meaningful solutions to increase confidence?


Topic 2: Food safety regulations--how regulators instil trust and confidence

This lecture will feature more broadly the subjects of trust and consumer expectations from a regulator’s perspective. We'll look at examples of how we've done this in the past and where the challenges are now and in the future.


Speakers:

· Bryan Wilson, Deputy Director-General, New Zealand Food Safety

· Nadine Tunley, Chief Executive, Oha Honey

· Dr Paul Dansted, Director Food Regulation, New Zealand Food Safety
