On 10 June, the FAO Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia and the WHO Regional Office for Europe hosted a World Food Safety Day webinar about the past, present and future of food safety.

Discussion looked at developments in food safety from a science and food control system perspective. The speakers shared experiences and updates on how food control has developed to become more science- and risk-based and highlighted issues related to food fraud and the prominent role that science plays in today’s food safety systems. All panellists stressed the importance of proper legislation, continuous development and use of science and information sharing as fundamental building blocks for increasing the trust in the safety and integrity of the food on our plates.
