FBD: Food industry “too secretive” about nanotechnology
The Food and Drink Federation has leapt to the defence of its members after a Lords committee criticised the food industry for being secretive about nanotechnology research.
The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee report, 'Nanotechnologies and Food', claimed that the food industry was failing to be transparent about its research into the uses of nanotechnologies and nanomaterials.
It said that the approach of food companies was to not publish or discuss details of its research, and while the food industry is right to be concerned about negative public reactions to developments in nanotechnologies, appearing to be secretive about its research "is exactly the type of behaviour which may bring about the public reaction it is trying to avert".
