Similarly, Dabusi pointed out that the conference is compatible with the role of quality control laboratories at the Chamber vis-à-vis food safety and the development of food industries. Among interventions made during the congress, Professor Monzer Hamzeh, said the purpose is always community service and human health, while the dean of the School of Health at the Lebanese University, Dr. Nina Zeidan, drew attention to the daily hazards, especially the impact of contamination and pollution within the food sector.
