The 3rd Food Allergen Management Symposium (FAMS2019), is an assembly of the best minds across the spectrum of food allergen management.

Anyone with an interest in food allergen management – and if you are reading this, then that means you – should attend FAMS2019.

From researchers to consumer groups, food manufacturers, suppliers, and testing laboratories, to clinicians, dieticians, the policy makers and enforcement agencies. This biennial symposium, unique to the Southern Hemisphere, has something for all.

FAMS2019 is a 3-day symposium reaffirming the concepts of ’risk communication’, science of thresholds, reference doses, and their application. Also covered will be updates on regulation and policy, food fraud insights, frontiers in treatment and clinical research, and the latest on detection methodologies from the laboratories.
