The Food Safety Seminar for Trade is a biennial function of the FEHD which was started in Year 2003. It aims to provide a forum for interactive exchange of information and views on current and important food safety issues in Hong Kong between the food trade and the Government.

    3. To introduce new food safety initiatives and programmes on food safety;
    4. To promote the importance of tripartite collaboration among the food trade, the public and the Government to ensure food safety;
