ABA, ATBI Team Up to Host Joint Session at Annual Meeting in September
The American Bakers Association (ABA), Washington, D.C., and the Allied Trades of the Baking Industry (ATBI) will come together to tackle bakers’ biggest business challenges in the special joint session: “Solutions to Bakers’ Most Vexing Problems.”
“We have always valued our relationship with ATBI and are grateful for the extremely beneficial guidance and assistance it has given our members over the years. We plan to elevate our partnership to the next level as we work together to find solutions to the problems keeping our business leaders up at night,” said ABA president and CEO Robb MacKie. “We thank ATBI for making its board members available for this, and know it will be a great exchange for all participating.”
ATBI’s supplier experts will come ready to talk through the issues, share best practices and explore opportunities for partnerships. Discussions will include:
• Identifying and preparing for future food safety risks;
• Reducing duplication of food safety audits;
• Retaining and recruiting skilled talent for “new” bakery technology; and
• Establishing the next steps in sustainability after the low hanging fruit is gathered.
This session will be held at ABA/ATBI’s annual joint meeting in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 21.
