students, and related professionals interested in promoting the science and technologies related to food security. Also it includes professionals concerned with
food safety and quality, nutritional value of foods, and improving food standards and

Atef will address issues of Lebanese Food Safety Authority & Sectarian Politics.
He will also address emerging preventive food safety laws and related environmental
Paradigms of risk analysis and management, value chain analysis, public health
and hygiene. He will talk about the impact of environmental pollution on food
security as well as the critical issue of Food Adulteration (its laws and governance).

Lebanese Food Safety, what Next? Have we asked ourselves why passing the
Lebanese Food Safety Law came at the same extraordinary Parliamentarian session
that passed the GATCA (Global Account Tax Compliance Act) compliance laws?

This talk precedes a key conference given by LAFST on the 28th and 29th of
September (Click Here).
