This conference has been organised to discuss the topic of healthy, sustainable food. The event aims to highlight the fact that consumers are often forgotten about when discussing the topic of food in the EU. Some of the panel discussions at the conference include ensuring food safety for consumers, healthy food-how to help consumers make healthy choices, food waste and food accessibility and affordability.
The conference will be held simultaneously in Dublin and Vilnius, the two capitals of Member States holding a Presidency of the EU in 2013. The two venues will be linked via a satellite; the conference will also be streamed online.
