SAMEFOOD (Safe Mediterranean Food Network) is an initiative promoted since 2013 by the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza of the International Centre of Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (IAMZ-CIHEAM) with the following general objectives:

  • To strengthen scientific cooperation for food safety in the Mediterranean Basin, focusing especially on North- South and South-South cooperation.
  • To promote a scientifically-based risk approach in food safety risk assessment and communication in the Mediterranean countries.

The Network is open to individuals and institutions of all around the world, especially from the CIHEAM member countries (Albania, Algeria, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey) and other countries from the Mediterranean basin.

Coordination and collaboration with international and national agencies in charge of food safety as well as with universities, research centres and other organisations and networks is strategic for SAMEFOOD. Since its origin, SAMEFOOD has had the collaboration of the European Food Safety Authorities (EFSA).
