NITZKE, Julio Alberto et al. Food safety and secutrity: back to the origins?. Braz. J. Food Technol. [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.spe, pp.02-10.  Epub Nov 30, 2012. ISSN 1981-6723.

The trend seen in the food market to value food as it was consumed in the past and its congruence with the pace of today's life and current technologies was the focus of the presentations and discussions that occurred during the 4th Symposium on Food Safety and Security in Gramado . The discussions were carried out around five themes: Food trends , Communication and food, Access to food, Sustainability and food production and Quality assurance and it was very clear in all of them that this search for "original" food either in content or in form is already more than a trend, emerging as a new social and market demand. On the other hand, it was almost unanimous that this accommodation between old values and new ways of life and technology brings many challenges, which will only be overcome through a collaborative vision of food safety and security, involving the various actors responsible for it.
