Press Release: New Year's Message from the ICC President

RSS ICC - Jue, 01/16/2014 - 21:03

Dear colleagues, dear friends,

I would like to start the New Year with all my best wishes for yourself, your family, your team and your organization.

More than ever, the importance of cereals for feeding the world is in the focus globally. All our efforts should aim to move towards a world without hunger. This concerns not only to progress on genetics and agronomy but also more qualitative aspects to ensure the safety of raw material and to develop end-products with nutritional and sensory qualities expected by consumers. Faced with these challenges we need to strengthen our global vision and to commit ourselves further to multidisciplinary approaches. This role will be developed in the coming years by ICC through the mobilisation of more researchers, more institutions and more corporate members over the world. We are pleased to welcome within ICC New Country Members: Brazil, India and New Zealand, as well as a new Corporate Member: TLR International Laboratories, Netherlands.

Thank you for your collaboration with ICC in 2013. ICC wishes you a successful 2014!

RSS ICC - Lun, 12/23/2013 - 07:22

On behalf of ICC I would like to thank you for your trust and collaboration in the past year. We can look back to another successful year in ICC, thanks to the great collaboration of the global ICC network of members and stakeholders.

Some highlights in 2013 were:

  • the successful organization of the three major conferences in Budapest, Hungary (4th MoniQA International Conference), Vienna, Austria (Gluten-Free 2013), and Perth, Australia (ICC Cereals Conference with AGSA)
  • the co-organization of some dozen other international meetings around the globethe re-launch of our international journal QAS with our new publisher Wageningen Academic Publishing
  • the start of several new EU funded / UNO supported research projects with ICC involvement
  • new regional initiatives (ASEAN and Asia-Pacific) and new scientific focus points (bioactives, functional foods, innovative rice products, a.o.) channeled in new working groups

We are looking forward to providing ever improving services to the cereals and grains community, as well as to the food science and technology innovation groups. ICC's focus in the future will include cereal based food innovation, food security, food and feed safety, and added value products for better nutrition. We hope for your continuous trust and we would like to wish you a Happy Holiday Season and a Successful New Year. Please mind that the ICC Headquarters will be closed between Christmas and New Year (23 December 2013 - 1 January 2014).

TRADEIT - A new project in support of the SME bakery sector

RSS ICC - Mar, 12/17/2013 - 10:27

ICC and MoniQA will support the TRADEIT project by disseminating project results and inviting bakeries to participate at training events offered by the project free-of-charge in various locations and in local languages all around Europe. TRADEIT is funded under FP7 KBBE.2013.2.3-02 Grant Agreement No KBBE-613776.

It is accepted that resource limitation precludes majority of Traditional Food Producing SMEs from participating in innovative and entrepreneurial activities. The TRADEIT project aims to address this through an ambitious program of events and supports for the Traditional Agri-Food sector which will through the promotion and facilitation of Collaboration, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Knowledge and Technology Transfer will increase the competitiveness and inter-regional advantage of participating Traditional Food Producing SMEs.

Acknowledging that time requirements and language barriers frequently disincentives SME participation in training and dissemination events TRADEIT will establish and pilot 9 TRADEIT Hubs in a total of 8 partner countries: Ireland, UK, Spain (2 Hubs), Portugal, Italy, Germany, Poland and Finland. Each Hub will form a sub-network, defined by regional and language with an associated network of local and regional traditional food producers and linked to the relevant National Technology Platform, Food for Life and other national food and drink and policy organisations. A TRADEIT Advisor is allocated to each Hub to co-ordinate regional events and act as an SME liaison.

Register now for the 6th Joint IAM/MoniQA "Sampling" Training Workshop in Budapest, Hungary, 2 March 2014

RSS ICC - Mar, 12/10/2013 - 15:56

Following on from the successful series of Workshops held immediately prior to the recent Sessions of CCMAS the IAM/MoniQA Workshop organisers were asked by delegates to further develop a number of issues of concern. In particular they were asked to consider whether it would be appropriate to develop a Workshop to discuss Sampling issues in the light of new approaches and exisitng Codex Standards. This has become particularly important given the increasing awareness of sampling uncertainty and at the same time confusion about its assessment and procedures to take appropriate and representative samples in diffferent commercial and regulatory environments. Starting as an exlusive offer for delegates of Codex Alimentarius these workshops have also become part of Continuous Professional Development for policy makers and decision makers in food businesses. Please find a draft programme at www.moniqa.org/events/workshop_budapest_march_2014.

The workshop is organised jointly by IAM and MoniQA. It will be held at the Ramada Plaza Budapest Hotel, now with a new name: The Aquincum Hotel Budapest, Árpád fejedelem útja 94, Budapest 1036, Hungary (www.aquincumhotel.com). This workshop is free for CCMAS delegates and members of IAM, discounts apply for MoniQA members and students. Registration is required by all participants and speakers.

In a complex environment of pending health claims, fragmented harmonisation in plants used for botanicals within Europe, and emerging issues of quality and safety, the PlantLIBRA project invites to its final conference in Vienna from 12 to 14 May 2014. It will feature the latest advances in botanical science, and in benefit and risk assessment of plants food supplements (PFS).

The conference will also provide a dialogue forum for disseminating research results among leading scientists, regulating authorities, and business representatives in the food supplement area. More broadly the conference will present to the wider community the more integrated scientific approach to risks and benefits of PFS tailored to support policy- science-based decision making, and contribute with an increased science data base to the challenges faced by the PFS sector. Ultimately it aims to increase the productivity and competitiveness of the European Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy.

MoniQA Workshop "Allergen-free Food: Market Opportunity and Process Control Plans for Food Manufacturer" in Bangkok, Thailand, 17-18 December 2013

RSS ICC - Jue, 11/14/2013 - 09:22

MoniQA and Thammast University would like to invite you to attend the workshop

"Allergen-free Food: Market Opportunity and Process Control Plans for Food Manufacturer" taking place at the Bangkok Cha-da Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand from 17-18 December 2013.

Workshop objectives:

  • To provide current market situations of allergen-free foods
  • To review the basics of food allergens
  • To be aware of regulations and allergen-free labeling
  • To transfer knowledge of strategies and management of food allergen
  • To learn analytical methods and verification techniques of allergen and allergen assay test kits

Rationale and Background:

Allergen-free food market is a global rapid-growing segment. The largest share of allergen-free food product value sales comes from North America and Europe. Analysts estimated annual growth rate of allergen-free food market in the US. being more than 10% and product sales in the year 2018 being more than US$ 6.2 billion. The fast growing market of allergen-free food is due to not only an increase in numbers of food allergy individuals but also allergen-free food has been considered to be healthy food.

Foods identified as allergens are wheat, milk, egg, peanut, soybean, fish, seafood, sesame and tree nuts. These foods are common ingredients in many food products. To produce allergen-free food products, food manufacturers have to be aware of types of allergens, control plan for processing, cross contamination possibly occurring during processing, detection methods for allergens and regulations including allergen-free labeling.
