BVL / European Commission, JRC
Congress on Food Fraud, June 12-13 2017


“Food Fraud” is the title of a congress hosted by the BVL and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Berlin on 12 and 13 June 2017. It will centre around the revision of the EU Control Regulation, which came into force in spring 2017. The new legal situation provides the framework for dealing in more depth with the implications of the new Regulation on the subject of food fraud. The event is addressed to all actors and stakeholders in this field.

The first day of congress will set the focus on increased demands resulting from the new Control Regulation for the practice of official food control, food industry and analytics. The congress will also discuss the collaboration with other public bodies involved in the prosecution of food fraud.

The second day will start with a presentation of Germany’s role and position with regard to the subject of food fraud by the Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), Mrs. Dr. Maria Flachsbarth, a panel discussion of representatives of the food industry and official food control, and an interactive exchange of expertise on combatting food fraud in Germany and Europe (section under the motto “World Café”). Finally, the challenges and opportunities of the new EU Control Regulation for analytic disciplines will be discussed.

Apart from this informative programme, a get-together at the near-by restaurant Reinhard´s in the evening of 12 June 2017 will give all participants many opportunities for an interdisciplinary exchange of experience and communication.
