Lloyd's Register Foundation has called for contributions from experts as part of a review on food safety.

The charitable foundation and Lloyd's Register (LR) invited experts from academia, NGOs, regulatory bodies and industry to contribute through future workshops.

LR serves 33,000 clients in the food sector from known brands to small suppliers.

Vincent Doumeizel, VP food and sustainability at Lloyd's Register, said: “Organisations are facing rising safety, food supply, technology, and environmental challenges along with tougher stakeholder and often governmental requirements, all of which is underpinned by growth and profitability concerns.

“The foundation's foresight review on food safety will aim to address some of the major issues which will help to shape the future of safe food for society everywhere and set out an agenda for action through research, innovation and training."

The review will address food safety in the short and longer term, looking at trends and challenges for society in secure production of food across the supply chain. It will make recommendations on the research, innovation, education, policy and practice needed.

Professor Richard Clegg, foundation chief executive, said the report will contribute to shaping the future of food safety.

"Research, innovation and skills in science and technology are vital to solving the economic and societal challenges of our world - and food safety is a prime example.”
