 Water Quality and Food Safety Symposium September 19, 2013

Hyatt Regency O’Hare, Rosemont, IL

 

The Nexus of Water Quality and Food Safety – Identifying Risks and Mitigation Strategies from Farm to Table

 

Co-sponsored by IIT’s Institute for Food Safety and Health and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Food Research Institute (FRI).


Water touches all aspects of the food chain from farm to table. Water is the most common food or beverage component ingredient and is also critical in cleaning operations. In the past water quality was not always scrutinized with the same rigor as other ingredients. This symposium will address recognition of the critical role of water quality throughout pre and post-harvest food production. Speakers will consider whether current water quality standards are sufficient to address the needs of the food industry. Given that sources of water quality vary widely from field to processors, what are the best approaches to ensure safety and quality? How can risks be reduced? Critical questions like these will be explored in this thought-provoking symposium.

 

This symposium will provide a forum for exchange of knowledge and developments among government, academia and the food industry on how water quality throughout the agrifood production chain impacts food safety and public health.


Sessions will include keynote speakers covering four major areas of concern: Public Health and Potable Water; Water Use in Agriculture; Water Use During Food Processing, and Water Reclamation and Reuse. Speakers will highlight issues of concern to produce, meat and poultry, dairy and beverages.
