This conference has been co-developed by Food Safety Tech and Center for Foodborne Illness Research and Prevention (CFI) at The Ohio State University.

The program is unique in that it has both Industry and Academia working together to offer practical guidance and cutting-edge research on the Detection, Mitigation, Control and Regulation of Salmonella, Listeria and Mycotoxins...

“Food safety hazards continue to be a challenge for all aspects of the food industry from farm to fork.” said Rick Biros, president of Innovative Publishing Company, publisher of Food Safety Tech and director of the Food Safety Consortium conference and Food Safety Tech Hazards series. “The detection, mitigation and control of food safety hazards issues must be discussed among peers and best practices must be shared, something you can’t do virtually. The human connection is so important for conference attendees. Whether it’s a random connection over lunch, a one-on-one question with a speaker after a presentation or a seat next to a new friend in a learning session—connecting with others is what makes events so valuable. We are excited to bring this program, designed to help facilitate this much needed critical thinking and sharing of best practices, to Columbus, Ohio.”
