He IV Veterinary Congress of Food Safety of the Canary Islands, which will be held on November 15 and 16 in the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, will discuss among other topics the introduction of food that is a novelty in food security. In particular, the consumption of algae, insects and also the contamination by microplastics in marine products will be addressed.

This edition will discuss various issues of interest in the food sector such as the production of fermented products, the healing of meats or low temperature cooking, as they are procedures that are being extended in collective restoration.

Another important aspect to be addressed is the impact of the increase in pollution of the marine environment and its direct impact on the food chain, such as the appearance of microplastics in fishery products.
