The aim of WMF meets IUPAC is to increase awareness of human and animal health risks due to natural toxicant contamination in agricultural commodities and seafood, and of potential risk management options, technologies and strategies for minimized
contamination.The event will focus in particular on mycotoxins, phycotoxins and plant toxins.

It will provide a unique platform for the food and feed industry, regulatory authorities and science:
• to exchange current information;
• to promote the harmonization of food and feed safety regulations and control procedures;
• to make recommendations for strategies enhancing the prevention and control of contamination;
• to ensure the safety and wholesomeness of an adequate food and feed supply.
