Three basic priorities we have as humans are to insure that we have: A roof over our heads, clothes on our backs and food for our mouths. As food safety and quality professionals living in the 21st century our priorities have evolved to insure: My facility is audit ready all the time, I have a clear understanding of FSMA and I am ready for it, I’m effectively engaging upper-management to gain their commitment for our food safety and quality programs…and the list goes on and on! Another priority you need to add to that list is to attend the SQF International Conference. The SQF International Conference, now in its 12th year, brings together food safety and quality professionals in the growing, processing, manufacturing, packaging, distribution and retail industries that are committed to protecting their brands, buyers and consumers.
Why you need to make being in Dallas in November a priority:
- To ensure you are properly prepared to implement Edition 8 of the SQF Code
- To share ideas with your peers and develop and strengthen business relationships
- To stay informed about changes and updates to all SQF programs and standards
- To get updates on hot-button issues such as FSMA, the SQF Retail Code, Gluten-Free Certification, Allergen Labelling and Ethical Sourcing
- To personally connect with the SQFI and FMI Food Safety Teams
