Food Safety Day

NYP is organising a “Food Safety Day”, bringing together experts from the regulatory body, lab solutions providers, retailers and educators to provide a holistic overview of food safety and offering the possible know-how, technology to help our food industry to prevent, monitor and detect food safety issues. Through this seminar, we would like to better understand and identify the needs of the industry, so as to provide relevant hands-on training and consultancy, subsequently.
