This year’s Food Safety Summit marks a special opportunity as it is the first time the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) will present a full-day Integrated Food Safety System Forum on Tuesday April 28, 2015. The focus will be on discussing how the FDA and the States plan to implement the new regulations to be mandated by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA): a major theme for 2015. Held at the Baltimore Convention Center, MD, April 28-30th, 2015, the Food Safety Summit is a national conference attended by more than 1,400 individuals associated with federal agencies, leading food manufacturers and academia. Over three days it offers a forum for the movers and shakers from industry, regulatory agencies, consumer groups and solution providers to discuss advancing food safety together.
The industry faces many challenges to avoid food product withdrawal or recall due to allergen mis-labeling, presence of foreign material – such as glass or metal – or contamination with a pathogen. New regulations have brought together stakeholders in the food industry to evaluate practices and solutions that are available or in development to ensure the integrity of food ingredients and finished products.
Make sure to attend the Thermo Fisher Scientific sponsored educational sessions to learn more on the Industry Perspective on Food Safety (April 28, 1:30-2:30 pm) and Food Fraud – Part 2 (April 29, 2-3:15 pm).
