Food Safety Summit Headed to Washington in April 2011

Kicking off with a critical food safety training and certification program, the 13th Annual Food Safety Summit will offer half-day workshops, sessions on traceability, emerging and regulatory issues, food defense, pest control, allergens and more.

The 13th Annual Food Safety Summit, produced by BNP Media, the Troy, Mich.-based parent company of Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery, promises to offer an outstanding educational program that’s solutions-focused and provides actionable "take-aways" from each session.

The Summit, which will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., will kick off with a ServSafe training and certification program on Monday, Apr. 18, 2011. This program will focus on the critical importance and role of food safety in an organization. The full conference program will begin on Tuesday, Apr. 19 with half-day workshops followed by an opening night reception from 5-8 p.m.

Four half-day workshops will be dedicated to the skills required to succeed. The workshops will focus on training for behavioral modification, effectively communicating with others in a company, the three pillars of a successful food liability program and conducting challenge studies.

Sessions on Wednesday and Thursday will focus on the most important issues facing food service and food safety professionals on a daily basis. Topics such as traceability, media training, emerging and regulatory issues, allergens, food defense, sanitation, sampling, pest control and more will be addressed. Wednesday morning will lead off with a keynote speaker, as well as the food quality awards presentation sponsored by DuPont. The conference sessions end Thursday at noon, followed by a “Lunch on the Go,” where attendees can grab lunch and head back to their offices or to the airport.

More than 1,400 food manufacturing, retail, foodservice, academic, military and government professionals are expected to attend The Summit to share knowledge and experiences in interactive workshops, general sessions and on the convention floor where more than 150 companies display products and services and the latest information in fighting contamination.
