Edit oria l 2016 is the year of major conferences and trade fairs for the food industry: the Global Food Safety Conference in Berlin highlighted major topics. Kurt-Peter Raezke, former Director at Intertek Bremen, Evangelia Komitopoulou of SGS Group Management Geneva and Michèle Lees of Eurofins Analytics France report on the most important outcomes and visions of the conference in Berlin that attracted approx. 1000 visitors from around the world. Everybody is aware of MRSA resulting from antibiotic abuse. But did you know that Norway is one of the very few countries where the use of antibiotics in cows has been been reduced by 70% from 1994 to 2014? So there is a way to improve the situation and Tove and Berte Asmussen of Raw Milk Connect, DK dive into this success story. Prof Michael Bockisch of DNV provides a dozen hints to avoid food fraud, Allen Sayler, Managing Partner, Center for Food Safety & Regulatory Solutions (CFSRS) and US legislation insider tells the “REAL” Story of the U.S. FDA regulations on FSMA Preventive Controls for Human Foods (PCHF). This time we are also looking at some new stuff: "seamorefood" founder and CEO Willem Sodderland is fully convinced that seaweed can be a replacer for Pasta. During the eFOOD-Lab International interview he gave some insights into this very old but revived food product. With the Analytica, Munich at the horizon "Optimizing a total nitrogen/protein analyzer for maximum sample throughput and lowest costper analysis" is no longer a phantasy but becomes reality with LECO's FP 628, says Michael Jacob, LECO European Field Product Manager. But it is not the only interesting trade fair this year: the VITAFOODS in Geneva will attract 900 exhibitors and 16'000 visitors and is still growing strongly. The optimism in the nutraceuticals industry seems unbreakable, as surveys indicate. That brings us to one of the most interesting technologies: "Protection of bioactive ingredients by encapsulation in glassy matrices" as Job Ubbink of Food Concept & Physical Design "The Mill" underlines. Finally, Leonardo Pires picks up the "Industry 4.0" development that is characterized by any part within the production chain communicationg with each other. Bruker's O-NET offers smart solutions in this respect. Hope you enjoy the read. Yours Thomas Kützemeier
