Since 13 December 2014 nanoparticles have to be labelled on foodstuff. According to the EU regulation concerning food information the reference “nano” is mandatory on packaging. The second International Fresenius Conference “Nanotechnology in Food” from 9 to 10 September 2015 in Cologne/Germany informs about this topic and other developments in research and regulation with regard to nanomaterials in food.

NanotechimageThe conference is divided into the topic areas “Regulatory issues”, “Medical issues and consumer safety”, “Analytical methods and scientific matters” and “Industry practice and experience in other areas”. The programme includes presentations about the labelling of nano ingredients, EFSA’s risk assessment of nanotmaterials concerning food and feed, the uptake of nanoparticles within the gastrointestinal tract, the communication about and the public perception of nanotechnology in food as well as presentations regarding its innovation potential. In addition, the topic “nano in food contact materials” will also be addressed.

The conference language is English.
