2017 FOOD conference

Under the High Patronage of the Health & Food Safety Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis, the partners of the European FOOD programme organise a conference at the European Parliament on October 19th 2017.
This half-day event will be organised around two main sessions. The first one will present the results of the 5-year barometers of the programme launched simultaneously in the member countries towards thousands of employees and restaurant owners. These yearly surveys enable to collect data about habits and expectations of the target groups – employees and restaurants – regarding healthy eating offer and demand and monitor their evolution over the years. The second part will open a discussion about the opportunities and the potential of new technologies in supporting healthy eating promotion.

Hosted by MEP Alojz Peterle and MEP Daciana Octavia Sarbu the conference will welcome high-level speakers from different and complementary fields: DG SANTE, DG CONNECT, WHO, Universities, Health Ministries and the Horeca sector.
