During last week’s Food Safety Consortium keynote episode, Frank Yiannas, deputy commissioner for food policy and response, drove home the agency’s initiative surrounding more effective food traceability.
In addition to a special FDA Keynote Presentation, the October 1 episode will feature a lively panel of industry experts discussing lessons learned from COVID-19 as well as food safety trends during the pandemic.
The goal is to put more recordkeeping requirements in place for specific foods based on risk.
The event begins on September 3 and runs through December 17. Registration is open now.
The blueprint will also include lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has upended events worldwide. In order to ensure the safety of attendees and speakers, the Consortium will convene as a series running from September–November.
As a result of the pandemic, fewer CBs have been able to conduct onsite regulatory audits and certifications to foreign entities.
The complimentary conference will cover a range of topics in food safety testing, bringing together industry experts with scientific, quality and regulatory experience.
The agency has announced updates in the face of challenges due to the COVID-19 crisis.
The Consortium will be held December 2–4 in Schaumburg, IL, but we’re prepared to go virtual if necessary.
