The Food and Drink Federation’s Food Safety and Authenticity Convention will take place in London on Tuesday 4th October this year. It is FDF’s aim to promote best practise in food safety and hygiene across the trade, and in a complex and ever-changing industry the conference hopes to explore innovations and forward-thinking in the sector.
There will be a talk from key-note speaker Catherine Brown, FDA’s Chief Executive, alongside a range of guest speakers covering a variety of different sector-related topics such as allergens management, risk assessment, contaminants and food crime. It is expected that the event will bring visitors from food safety and hygiene professionals to technical professionals, microbiologists, quality assurance specialists, incident and site managers and food safety trainers.
FDF Chief Scientist Helen Munday said: “Food and drink safety is a complex and ever changing business priority. Pursuing best practise in authenticity and hygiene is the number one concern of every responsible food and drink manufacturing operator. Experts say we have amongst the best and safest food in the world in this country, and it’s this hard earnt and enviable reputation that we need to safeguard.
“FDF’s Convention will be a great opportunity for people involved in food safety, hygiene and authenticity to share intelligence and better understand future challenges.
“We are delighted to have ACO Building Drainage as a sponsor for this important event.”
