The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published six key recommendations for advancing food safety based on discussions held at the recent ONE—Health, Environment, and Society—Conference. The hybrid event was held in Brussels, Belgium and virtually on June 21–24, 2022.
The conference was designed to explore how scientific advice on food safety and nutrition will need to develop to respond to new policy targets and societal demands for safe, nutritious, and sustainable food. The event also addressed how institutions that provide scientific advice on public health, environmental protection, food safety, and nutrition should work more closely together and increase their preparedness for emerging and evolving challenges.
EFSA organized the conference in collaboration with the European the European Environment Agency (EEA), the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), and the Joint Research Center of the EU (JRC). The international scientific conference brought together experts and stakeholders to discuss key food safety topics and share knowledge, data, and expertise, with the intent to embrace the “One Health” approach to health assessment. The conference consisted of a series of plenary sessions and breakout sessions organized around four thematic tracks—One Life, One Planet, One Society, and Many Ways—across three, interconnected tiers—food safety, One Health, and food system sustainability. More than 2,700 individuals from academia, public institutions, the private sector, and nongovernmental organizations took part in the event.
