Biovet International Symposium 2021 · Intestinal welfare and food safety

On Thursday 17th June Biovet S.A. will hold the Biovet International Symposium 2021 which is now in its thirty-fifth edition. This time, the congress will focus on ‘INTESTINAL WELFARE AND FOOD SAFETY’ and will be organized by Veterinaria Digital.

The food industry is paying a lot of attention to avoid the presence of potentially pathogenic microorganisms in contaminated food, especially in animal products, which represent a threat for food safety.

Food safety has become an important concern globally in animal production. Several zoonosis controls measures have been implemented in slaughterhouses and food processing plants. However, foodborne diseases still are a problem of great impact. Salmonella, Campylobacter, Escherichia coli and Clostridium are some of the most prevalent microorganisms in products of animal origin.
