Entitled ‘A focus on future law and threats’, the conference will cover a range of business-critical food safety issues, including regulation, data sharing, product recall, blockchain and allergen control.
It is sponsored by AIB International, Pal International, and Westgate Factory Dividers.
Leading the conference line-up is Nina Purcell, director of Wales and local delivery at the Food Standards Agency (FSA), who will offer an update on the move to a new risk-based approach to inspecting food and drink businesses.
The conference will be divided into four sessions, each with a different theme.
How safe is our food?
Session one will ask, how safe is our food? It will include a presentation from Andy Morling, head of head of food crime at the National Food Crime Unit, who will discuss the nature and scope of recently reported food safety offences.
Session two will focus on understanding the legislation landscape. In addition to the FSA’s Purcell, John Bassett, policy and scientific development director at the Institute of Food Science & Technology, will discuss the measures food businesses should take to ensure they are responsive to the changes in regulation.
The third session, emerging technologies and processes, will cover allergen contamination, blockchain, and how IT and data can overcome regulation challenges.
Implementing a food safety philosophy, the Food Industry Information Network, and product recall are the subjects covered in the last session – culture and control.
