Viruses 02 July 2018 Press Release

Norovirus in the UK food supply chain – where are we and what's next?

Noroviruses (NoV) are a major cause of infectious diarrhoea and vomiting and can lead to outbreaks of gastroenteritis. Like other organisms that affect the gut, NoV can be passed from person to person, or be picked up from a contaminated environment or through eating contaminated food.

Campden BRI’s norovirus seminar, 28th September, will provide industry with up-to-date information about the prevalence of norovirus in the UK food supply chain. New, unseen data on norovirus in the UK food chain will be presented, plus data on the presence of norovirus in oysters, salad leaves and soft berry fruits sold at retail and norovirus in the catering environment.

There will also be presentations from expert speakers:

This seminar is aimed at technical managers and microbiologists working in catering, retail or the shellfish or fresh produce sectors.
