Food Crime and Integrity in Birmingham

Last night Birmingham Food Council held an event to look at what’s happening in Birmingham following on from the release of The Elliott Report, The report commissioned in response the horse meat scandal.

Professor Chris Elliott, the author of the report joined us to give us an update on the national picture – What has happened since the release of the publication, and Nick Lowe from Birmingham City Council came and gave us a talk on where the council sits – What they are doing to stop food crime and preserve food integrity across the city.

The whole night was live blogged over on the Birmingham Food Council’s website, and you can go there now to get a flavour of the discussions that have taken place.

You can also add your thoughts by joining the #FoodCrime conversation on twitter.
