Thanks to a renewed partnership with global food equipment and technology show Process Expo, Food Safety Summit experts will develop a food safety track of educational sessions to be held during Process Expo, set for Oct. 8-11, 2019, at Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center.
Sessions will address FSMA updates, HACCP training, listeria, traceability, environmental monitoring, food fraud, auditing, food allergen management, pest management, and other key issues for food and beverage processors, packaging professionals and equipment manufacturers.
“The Food Safety Summit is a leading producer of education for food safety professionals, and we are thrilled to be working with them again,” said Jarrod McCarroll, chairman of the McLean, Va.-based Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA), which owns Process Expo, and president of Weber Inc., in Kansas City, Mo. “Our attendees provided great feedback from the 2017 track of food safety courses, and we look to the summit to provide us with leading subject-matter experts to help us educate our audience. Our attendees will have the opportunity to learn critical information on food safety as well as participate in a certification course on HACCP, Preventive Control for Human Food and Preventive Control for Animal Feed.”
Full details and registration information will be available on the Process Expo website in the next few months.
“Food and beverage processors are required to understand new food safety regulations, and through our strong relationships with leading industry experts we will develop a series of dynamic education programs for the 2019 Process Expo,” said Scott Wolters, director, Food Safety Summit. “Our goal is to provide presentations on specific food safety challenges, for attendees to learn about the latest breakthroughs and gain insight into potential solutions.”
Billed as the largest conference and expo on food safety in North America, the Food Safety Summit will take place May 6-9, 2019 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, in Rosemont, Ill.
