  • Collaboration, Culture and Capacity Building Will Take Centre Stage at GFSI’s Global Food Safety Conference 2018

    Food safety, transparency, and traceability are top of mind these days for everyone; from the CEO of a food and beverage company all the way to the individual consumer. In this environment of consumer awareness and digital transformation, how can we ensure food safety for consumers everywhere? The Global Food Safety Initiative has made it their mandate to advance innovation and collaboration around this question, weaving it into the fabric of the 17th instance of our Global Food Safety Conference taking place in Tokyo from 5-8 March 2018.

  • Cooperation in Consumer Food Safety

    The Partnership for Food Safety Education was formed not long after an event that many professionals in food safety will remember well – the outbreak at Jack-in-the-Box restaurants in the western U.S. that led to the deaths of four children and serious illness for many many more.  Although that outbreak stemmed from a restaurant, in reaction to the event was considerable thought given to the need to invest in increasing awareness and modifying the behavior of consumers, broadly, related to the safe handling and preparation of food at home.

  • Food Safety - A Never Ending Journey

    GFSI’s journey began 16 years ago, when a few leading retailers came together over a common desire to get a grip on food safety. They set out to standardize understanding through establishing a benchmark system for certification schemes. With easily comparable quality and safety requirements. Beyond national boundaries, on a worldwide level. Now, GFSI has developed into a thought leader that binds people and organisations together.
