Next week GFSI will be hosting 200 industry and government professionals to discuss leveraging GFSI in FSMA implementation. The GFSI Expert Briefing takes place on November 15 in Washington, D.C., and will look at the role of GFSI in the marketplace and the domestic and international collaboration necessary to comply with new regulations.
“Science guides industry and policymakers to the same place as we work towards our common objective of ensuring a safe food supply for consumers,” commented Mike Robach, chair of the GFSI Board of Directors in a press release from The Consumer Goods Forum. “Public-private dialogue and collaboration is paramount to achieving this goal.”
Speakers at the event come from a range of international companies, including Cargill, Dole, McDonald’s, Target, Walmart and Wegmans. FDA and other national policymakers and legislators will also be present. Industry briefings take place in the morning and afternoon.
