Coping with mycotoxins: the systems approach

The occurrence of mycotoxins in various crops affects food and feed safety, food security, and international trade. Mycotoxin contamination is due to a series of events, including weather conditions, land use and crop rotation, varieties, cropping practices, harvest and post-harvest handling practices, and possible effects of climate change. Even though a lot of research has been carried out, no single approach has proven to be a successful strategy to cope with the challenge of mycotoxins. Therefore, integrated approaches to control mycotoxin contamination along the food and feed supply chain are crucial.

The World Mycotoxin Forum – 8th conference

The 8th conference of The World Mycotoxin Forum is held in Vienna, Austria, 10-12 November 2014. The conference will be aimed at integrated solutions minimising mycotoxin contamination of raw materials and providing management solutions for safe use from the farm to the fork, including:

  • presentations and discussions in plenary meetings and parallel sessions
  • poster sessions
  • spotlight presentations covering a wide range of topics including case studies and industry updates
  • workshops and demonstrations
  • a concurrent instrument/manufacturers exhibition providing information on products, equipment and services.
