The World Mycotoxin Forum is the leading international meeting series on mycotoxins where food and feed industry representatives meet with people from universities and governments from around the world.

The mycotoxin contamination of various crops and derived products is a global concern because it has significant implications for food and feed safety, food security, and international trade. Despite a lot of research and available interventions, mycotoxin prevention and control remain a challenge for agriculture, and for food and feed industries. Several pre- and post-harvest measures can be taken in tackling mycotoxin exposure, however, they are not fully adequate to eliminate mycotoxins from the food and feed supply chain. In addition, climate change is increasingly affecting the occurrence of mycotoxins worldwide.

Can we ever have a mycotoxin-free supply chain? The 10th conference of The World Mycotoxin Forum aims to contribute to this ultimate goal by taking mycotoxin control to the next level. The conference will offer an excellent way to network, share ideas, and formulate recommendations and conclusions on how to close knowledge gaps.

The 10th conference of The World Mycotoxin Forum includes:

  • presentations and discussions in plenary meetings and parallel sessions
  • poster sessions
  • company pitches covering a wide range of topics
  • workshops and demonstrations
  • a concurrent instrument/manufacturers exhibition providing information on equipment, products, and services.

High-quality speakers, ample time for discussions, and every opportunity to establish rewarding contacts are values The World Mycotoxin Forum wants to uphold. The General Conference Chairs – Prof.dr. Rudolf Krska and Hans van Egmond, M.Sc. – and the members of the Advisory Committee are looking forward to meeting you.
