TRIPTOLEMOS FOUNDATION STATEMENT on fake news and recommendations in food

In many online and offline media, false and untested information frequently appears, based on pseudoscience, that is, lacking in scientific certainty, related to the global food system. This generates confusion and feeds the false news (fake news) and certain new ideologies that condition the alimentary behavior.

Triptolemos Foundation organized the first day in Alimentaria 2018 around “The Fake News: consequences for companies and consumers” and the initiative to promote this Declaration arose.

We denounce the false news and all those commercial strategies that in different ways question the rigor of the rules and legislation. The objective of the initiative is to raise society’s awareness of its consequences.
