Budapest is to play host to more than 40 European countries next week as officials gather to discuss food safety and quality issues and means by which to raise consumer confidence after several recent food scares including foot and mouth and BSE.  An event jointly organised by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the 25-28 February Pan-European Conference on Food Safety and Quality is also co-sponsored by the European Community and some FAO/WHO member countries.
