Impetus to advance food safety
PolyU plays a proactive role in developing technologies and solutions tackling food safety issues with the establishment of the Food Safety and Technology Research Centre in 2011 and the Food Safety Consortium (FSC) in 2015. Recently, Dr Terence Lau, Convener of the FSC and Director of Innovation and Technology Development, was invited to attend a high level meeting at the United Nations, New York during the inaugural World Food Safety Day. He shared his view on the importance of the multidisciplinary collaboration and the need to develop innovative technologies in order to tackle emerging food safety challenges.
