GFSI at 9th SGS Food Forum in Moscow - "Time to Act"
July 2017
Moscow, Russia

GFSI Board Member Pierre De Ginestel will deliver a presentation on behalf of GFSI, followed by an open Q&A, at the 2017 SGS Food Forum taking place in Moscow in July. The talk is set within the framework of a session on Global Food Safety Standards and will look at the how the industry, through GFSI, is advancing harmonisation and trust in food safety around the world. De Ginestel is Corporate Quality Director at French retail giant Auchan and is an active contributor to the Global Food Safety Initiative. Throughout the years, GFSI has often played a part in Forums such as this one, which focuses on quality and sustainability in the food industry.

According to the organisers, delegates' feedback from previous events has shown that GFSI is an  important topic to the programme and highlighted the wish to see it on this year's agenda as well. GFSI-recognised certification programmes are in high demand among Russian food producers, they explain, and this year it seems particularly important to discuss the 7th version of the GFSI Benchmarking Requirements.

The 9th edition is set to gather about 200 food professionals, including businesses and governmental authorities, from Russia and other CIS countries, which often include Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Latvia and Turkmenistan.
