This Shellfish Regional Information Event is the last of a series held by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI), in conjunction with the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA), the Marine Institute and Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), around the coast in 2017 and 2018.
The informal events are an opportunity for all those involved in the shellfish industry to learn more about the role of the Irish Shellfish Monitoring Programme and how it assists industry to ensure that live bivalve molluscs placed on the market meet the highest standards of food safety.
The presentations will cover a range of topics of interest to shellfish operators such as biotoxin sampling and reporting, microbiological classification, accessing grants and funding schemes, new legislation, Food Safety Management Systems, food incidents, new risks and exports. Due to the local importance of scallops this event will take a look at the issues associated with this species.
The event will start with registration and refreshments at 9am and will conclude with a light lunch at 1pm.
