This MIG provides a unique forum for members with an interest in the safety and quality of the full spectrum of raw
materials and ingredients being supplied to food and drink manufacturers. Members, who are active in plant breeding, agriculture, horticulture,
agrochemical supplies, produce marketing, food manufacturing, distribution, and retailing etc., share a common interest in raw materials and
ingredients products, innovation, and solutions.
The MIG maintains a close interest in and is kept fully informed about factors influencing the supply and quality of
primary agricultural products, including discussion of upcoming and in-place guidance and legislation. The aim of this MIG is to provide a
collaborative environment in which challenges and solutions can be discussed. It is also an ideal forum for networking, horizon-scanning,
identifying gaps in knowledge and addressing them, as well as keeping up to date with legislation, latest research, and other upcoming topics.
