SQF Code Edition 9: What’s Changed and How to Adapt

Everyone has a different food safety journey. In the event’s two-and-a-half days of programming, you can curate your own agenda and select different education sessions and engagement opportunities to make this event best fit your needs.

With SQF Edition 9 implementation in May 2021, there will be a lot to talk about and share in late October with new understanding and insights from six months of audits, corrective actions, and insights.

Safely Gathering

SQF Unites will be an event that not only delivers valuable food safety knowledge, but also provides a socially distanced event flow. From your arrival at the Orlando Airport, the Hyatt Regency Hotel, and the SQF Unites event space, you will find safety is top of mind.

We take your safety seriously and are doing all the planning to ensure we host a safe, healthy event for you.

We are following the guidance from worldwide health organizations and experts and are fully committed to taking appropriate precautions to provide a safe and healthy environment for attendees. We encourage our attendees to work with us to help make this happen.


In two-and-a-half powerful days, focused on your learning needs, you’ll gain insights into investing in food safety culture, root cause analysis, internal auditing, corrective and preventative actions, risk assessments, and more.

Event limited to 600 attendees.



Ready to safely mingle? We’ll gather around the pool as much as possible, and we’re all about elbow and fist bumps!  For two-and-a-half days in late October, reunite with colleagues in Orlando. For goodness’ sakes, we have a lot to share and certainly celebrate that we were key in safely moving food through the supply chain!



You’ll be able to visit with more than 30 sponsors and exhibitors who might just have that next time-saving solution, service, or advice you need. The SQF Unites Exhibitor Exchange will also host bite-sized learning and tabletop discussions, socially distanced-style, of course.
