UN Food Safety Expert Group – Trieste Italy

The Alcam Group are members of the UN Food Safety Expert Group operating out of the UN office in Trieste in northern Italy

The group is chartered with looking at the global issues of food security against a background of

  • environmental degregation,
  • climate change and
  • ‘peak oil’ production , where petroleum dependent production and distribution systems are economically challenged.

The Group is looking at the challenge of food production, food safety from the developing country perspective, to see how [and if] economic development can be fostered through access to regional and global food markets and to formulate a clear understanding of the issues facing developing countries with a view to appropriate project design and intervention.


Support Program

    In today’s world there is a requirement for Owners and Managers to be compliant with an ever increasing level of legislation. It can be quite difficult to be constantly up to speed with the legislative requirements but a failure to do so can under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work act 2005 result in owners and managers being personally liable, incur fines up to €3m or 2 years imprisonment.
