The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and the TAFS forum have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to start collaborating on animal health and food safety matters.
GFSI will profit from the TAFS forum’s expertise in risk assessment and risk communication on animal health issues that are of relevance to food safety, whereas the TAFS forum gets access to a channel for implementation of its analyses. The combination of the two creates an integrated system of animal health and food safety issue management.
A national programme to eradicate Johne's Disease (Paratuberculosis) will start in Ireland next January.
The disease is said to be 'a major cause for concern for dairy processors supplying product into the infant formula market', but beef processors are also believed to be 'anxious to tackle the issue'.
