2017 Global Food Safety Conference in Houston, Texas2017 GFSC Committee is busy working
I am honored to be the chair of the 2017 Global Food Safety Conference that will be held February 28 through March 2, 2017 in Houston, Texas. This will be the 16th conference that the CGF-GFSI has held to promote and raise the bar on food safety globally and is the first time that the conference will be held in the great state of Texas.
The 2017 GFSC Committee is busy working to develop an outstanding program that leverages the successes of our past conferences and incorporates the feedback that many of the attendees have provided, all while looking to the future of how the Global Food Safety Initiative will continue to drive the vision of Safe Food for Consumers, Everywhere.
Our conference theme this year is “Leadership for Growth”. The work that GFSI is doing on food safety is not only about compliance to regulations and standards, but supports the efforts to feed a growing population that according to estimates will reach 9 Billion people by 2050. We have structured the program to address many of the areas that will enable the food industry to meet these challenges in the coming years. As food safety is non-competitive and one food safety problem can impact every company in the food chain, we must collaborate to ensure that on food safety, all boats rise with the tide.
