What I like about this symposium and also about the documentation which has been set out is that it links three areas: it links nutrition, it links food security and it links food safety.  There has been a tendency to do this in isolation and I think that you cannot do that.

We need to consider all three areas in order to come to an integrated solution for nutrition, for health and for environment. Otherwise it doesn’t work. The World Food Research and Innovation Forum identifiest that these are relevant topics which should be considered in one go, and that is really important.
