As WGS becomes more prevalent in surveillance and regulatory compliance operations, and foodborne illness attribution, there are, however, several areas of continued debate surrounding the use of WGS-based tools. These include but are not limited to standardizing methodologies to determine similarity; appropriateness of retrospective linking of illnesses, establishing insanitary manufacturing conditions; and continued need for reliance on epidemiological and consumption evidence. The session will include a panel of speakers representing academia, government, and industry who will share their technical and regulatory perspectives, and the real-world opportunities and challenges related to the growth of WGS in food safety applications.

This panel will discuss the application of a highly advanced and promising tool in our food production system and consider science and risk-based regulatory approaches and policies to drive public health objectives.

More than 2 billion people live below the poverty line and experience malnutrition or food insecurity. Usually, global development programs are not necessarily associated with food science and technology but more so with the improvement of agricultural practices, standard setting across nations through Codex activities, or in rapidly responding to humanitarian crises. However, food science and technology is at the core of the Sustainable Development Goal that aims to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture. This general lack of awareness of the junction between food science and sustainable development results in lack of innovation targeted to foods or food ingredients for humanitarian purposes, their safety or stability; lack of food safety management systems focused on informal markets or small manufacturers in developing economies; and little attention is given to capacity development throughout value chain addition in the poorest sectors of the population. Furthermore, there are no clear venues for food technology professionals to contribute with their expertise and collaborate with multilateral organizations in projects either remotely or locally. For example, WFP feeds 80 million people annually with only a staff of 20 food technologists contributing to the development, distribution and management of the safety and quality of food value chains in some of the planet’s most remote and insecure regions.

The session aims at providing clarity on how interested food technologists could participate either remotely or locally in the various programs managed by UN food agencies. This is a first collective step between these organizations and IFT to find avenues to identify food technology capabilities and resources that can contribute to the strengthening of capacities of local communities that these organizations assist.
