International Conference on the Epidemiology and Control of Biological, Chemical and Physical Hazards in Pigs and Pork
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The SafePork conference series began in 1996 to bring together international researchers, industry, and government agencies to discuss current Salmonella research and identify research needs pertaining to both pig and pork production. In subsequent years topics of research presented at these conferences expanded to include other chemical and biological hazards to pig and pork production.

Abstract

According to the General Food Law, food producers are responsible for the production of safe products. Safe in this regard is often interpreted as compliance to EU food safety legislation. The level of compliance between companies differs and can be improved by measures such as education or sanctions. In order to determine the effectiveness of various enforcement strategies on the level of compliance we developed a simulation tool using Agent Based Modelling (ABM) as a method.
