The World Mycotoxin Forum® (WMF) 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 main objectives of The World Mycotoxin Forum® are: to provide a unique platform for the food and feed industry, regulatory authorities and science; to exchange information and experiences on the various aspects of mycotoxins; to review current knowledge related to mycotoxins in food and feed; to discuss strategies for prevention and control of mycotoxin contamination ensuring safety and security of food and feed supply; and to initiate the systems approach for the control of mycotoxin contamination along conventional and organic supply chains.
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) serves to advance the worldwide aspects of the chemical sciences and to contribute to the application of chemistry in the service of humankind. As a scientific, international, non-governmental and objective body, IUPAC addresses many global issues involving the chemical sciences. In 2019, IUPAC will celebrate its 100th anniversary.
In 2001, the 1st conference of The World Mycotoxin Forum took place. WMFmeetsIUPAC, the joint conference series of The World Mycotoxin Forum and the IUPAC International Symposium on Mycotoxins, started in 2012.
