News & Events

In addition to publishing the latest GHI news, activities and event notices for our members, GHI also communicates sound principles of food safety science to influencers and decision makers—from the general public and the press, to politicians, policymakers and regulatory authorities.

Through a variety of communications, we aim to improve understanding and better inform all stakeholders so that objective scientific concepts, not political expediency or media hype, become the basis of crafting meaningful, harmonized food safety legislation and regulation in all countries.
