EMN for Safe and Sustainable Food

The provision of safe, high-quality food is vital for human health, and innovation in the food sector will be needed to protect the environment, ensure sustainability, and respond to future needs.

The European Metrology Network (EMN) for Safe and Sustainable Food will foster collaboration and coordination in the measurement science community to meet metrology needs along the food chain, working within the European Union’s Farm to Fork Strategy.

The network will promote a harmonised approach to food measurements, reference materials and standards, which will allow National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) and Designated Institutes (DIs) across Europe to respond to stakeholders and regulations with confidence and quality. This will afford greater protection to citizens and the environment and accelerate the response to emerging and future metrology needs. The EMN aims to assess current capabilities within the network, transfer knowledge between network members, support provisional developments and create a research hub for food safety research.
