Food biotechnologies with a focus on food safety

FAO has just published an “Information toolkit on food biotechnologies with a focus on food safety”, which serves as a basis to assist countries in addressing the general public’s concerns on food biotechnology and food safety, to support them in raising awareness of the science of food biotechnologies and food safety and to inform discussions and decisions. It consists of one handbook, providing an instruction manual for the whole set of documents, and ten booklets, covering background and guidance, fundamentals, rationale for potential benefits, GM food safety assessment, regulations, human health, environment, practical uses and applications, current innovations and public engagement respectively.
