Smoked food gets fit for the future
On October 29th, Hamburg will host the fourth CleanSmoke Coalition Congress, a meeting that will gather private persons, companies and associations, that have a professional interest in smoked food and the smoking industry in an effort to address the current challenges for the processors. The aim is to make smoking future-proof and make modern smoking technologies well-known throughout Europe. "The CleanSmoke Coalition is committed to enable companies to continue smoking despite strict environmental regulations, to ensure that sustainability does not end at the smoking chamber, to guarantee that traditional smoked goods will continue to taste as they have done for centuries and are not harmful to health. Since 2017, the CleanSmoke Coalition has been inviting the industry to exchange views on how food can be produced more sustainably, how a clear declaration of CleanSmoke as smoke can be achieved and benefits for producers, retailers and consumers," sai a press release from the coalition.
This year, the congress will focus on consumer interests, EU law and environmental protection as the industry must find a solution to address the challenges raised by environmental requirements.
