More about the program...

Registration Prices and Team Discounts

With the early bird discount, the complete series of episodes is $295 for a single login (that's just $21 an episode!) and $995 for a company wide enterprise license with unlimited logins.

Continuing Education and CEUs

The 14 episodes in a 17-week span delivers a total of 50 hours of food safety education and training in a highly manageable pace and format. A Certificate of Attendance is provided for each attendee.

Schedule conflicts?

No problem! For the episodes in which you can't attend the live broadcast, watch them later "On Demand".

Much more than a bunch of webinars... A Virtual Platform creating greater human interaction!

Human connection is so important for events. That's why we've invested in new tools into the Conference Virtual Platform to ensure those discussions, discovery, and connection can go on whether our event is offline or online (and not end when the live stream does).

The new platform provides attendees with a way to keep track of live sessions, connect with sponsors, and engage with peers, all in a familiar way.

The Consortium is not the only game in town...

Simply, the experience other food safety conferences are offering is not conducive to learning, staying engaged or take into consideration that you have a job to do during that week.

This is why we have designed the Consortium's program with short, manageable episodes that are highly educational.

Also register for the Cannabis Quality Virtual Conference Series


With the passage of the Farm Bill last year, there has been a great deal of interest from the food industry in cannabis-infused foods and beverages, which includes hemp and CBD. You can learn more about this growing industry by including the Cannabis Quality Virtual Conference in your registration. This is optional and available at a discounted price of only $50.
