Amidst old friends and new colleagues, SQFI, a division of FMI, proudly hosted over 850 food safety professionals, including over 40 retailers, at the 2019 SQF Conference in San Antonio, Texas. This conference provides a variety of educational opportunities for SQF stakeholders in the auditing, manufacturing, retail and foodservice sectors. The global audience helps FMI and SQFI assess emerging challenges facing our food supply and workforce. While it can be easy to shy away from difficult conversations, FMI is proud to bring stakeholders together to help solve some of our industry’s greatest challenges.
While attendees learned about various food safety topics, I found the following three discussions to be especially important as the food industry moves into a new decade.
Overall, the FMI Food Safety and SQFI teams are grateful to have learned from passionate food safety leaders. While identifying significant challenges in our industry is important, it is even more important to act and solve these challenges – together.
The 2020 SQF Conference will be held October 27-29 in Orlando, FL at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. Please look for more information on registration and program details later in 2020.
