Tony Flood, International Food Information Council, asks "How much time do you spend learning about something you don't think you'll need?" and provides insight on how this applies to food safety. He suggests creativity is key to implementing food safety.
How can we be better at communicating the risks of food safety? People are interested in food from a nutritional point of view and from a personal point of view.
