Increasing consumer awareness and globalisation are forces driving growth in the food sector. With a notable development in the Middle East, Food Safety & Quality Conference, scheduled for 7-8 May 2014 in Muscat, Oman, will discuss and debate the constraints, growth trends and untapped markets looking into food safety and quality. Looking extensively into food production rather than just relying on imported food or packaged food, the conference will address concerns at various levels such as procurement, processing, packaging, storage and transportation. The summit is tailor made to bring in regional harmony in the GCC food safety norms.
