Advancing Food Safety Worldwide® The International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) and its 4,000 food safety professional members are committed to Advancing Food Safety Worldwide® through the mission: “To provide food safety professionals worldwide with a forum to exchange information on protecting the food supply.”
IAFP is proud to be an important part of several international food safety conferences held around the world each year. The combined efforts in recent years between IAFP and China, Dubai, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Turkey have attracted top-level leaders and speakers from government, industry, science and academia to focus on one goal: to improve food safety around the world.
Since 2005, IAFP's European Symposium on Food Safety has been shaping the future of food safety by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas with colleagues from across Europe working in industry, government and academia. This well-known food safety conference in Europe has drawn food safety professionals from across the continent and throughout the world to such well-known locations as the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain and The Netherlands. The 2015 European Symposium on Food Safety will be held in Cardiff, Wales, where more than 300 participants are expected to convene for three days of intense learning, sharing and networking.
Each year, IAFP hosts an Annual Meeting, providing attendees with information on current and emerging food safety issues, the latest science, innovative solutions to new and recurring problems, and the opportunity to network with thousands of food safety professionals from around the globe. Held in various locations throughout North America, this meeting has expanded in content and participation over the years to become the leading food safety conference worldwide. IAFP 2015 will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon, where more than 2,800 attendees from six continents are expected to take part in the highest in quantity, quality and diversity of an outstanding program on a variety of timely topics from leading global speakers.
