One of the greatest challenges facing humankind in the 21st century is ensuring appropriate quantity and quality of food for a growing population, especially in emerging countries, preserving our natural resources. A wide-ranging discussion on this topic considering the current global scenario with an assessment of the Latin American and Brazilian perspectives as key players in the food safety sector, which cannot be missed out in an event that shows the relationship between supply and demand of food to the four corners of the world.

3:30pm to 5:30pm PANEL 2: FACILITATION OF INTERNATIONAL AGRICULTURAL TRADE – REGULATORY CHALLENGES
Feeding all people on the planet is not just a problem regarding the amount of food that needs to be produced in terms of potential consumption. Among the many issues that affect the access to food is trade regulations, which have been increasingly developed since GATT and now during the WTO rounds, although without the progress that would allow a greater participation of developing countries in the global market. The protectionism of the rich is still a bottleneck that has to be overcome. We are still looking forward to finding a solution to this issue, especially with the current apparent neo-nationalist protectionism, which makes it a very complex task.

There are several serious studies showing that the amount of food wasted or spoiled from field harvest to final consumption is a terrible tragedy: so many people are starving and so much is wasted. It is the obligation of governments and contemporary societies to reduce this major loss. The food losses takes place at harvesting, transportation, storage, packaging, distribution, industrialization, domestic kitchens and restaurants of all kinds. There is a great lack of knowledge of the subject and making a clear assessment of it might be an element that can contribute to food safety without major investments.
