FAMS2017 provides a unique opportunity for industry, researchers, dieticians, clinicians and consumer groups to come together to address the needs of the food allergic consumer and will present collaborative and innovative approaches to harmonisation of food allergen management. The symposium offers the opportunity to cover food allergy from the clinical viewpoint, review pragmatic tools for management in the food industry, examine regulations and discuss the complexity of analysis,
