Food & Health Network Brief

Welcome to F&HN Brief. In this issue we report on the recent knowledge sharing day and the launch of the new cluster.

Knowledge Sharing Day

Members able to attend this event on 23 June found it very informative. A brief summary is available at: www.foodandhealthnetwork.com/23junesummary.html. The agenda for the day, and copies of the presentations are available on the members' section of the web site at: www.foodandhealthnetwork.com/fhnmembers/23june.html

Allergy Cluster Launched

Food allergy is an increasing concern for the food industry, with apparent allergy rates on the increase, and impending EU legislation on labeling. Members now have the opportunity to take advantage of IFR's international reputation in food allergy research
