Food Manufacture's Food Safety Briefing, chaired by chief executive of Campden BRI Steven Walker and sponsored by RSSL, will take place online on 15 October at 3pm.

Food Safety Briefing: 2020 and beyond: a new era for food standards​, which is free to attend, will exclusively reveal the results of Food Manufacture​'s annual food safety survey of thousands of food and drink manufacturers across the UK.

The research will provide a unique and independent overview of food standards and key challenges at the factory level with feedback from the people closest to the action: food safety, technical and quality managers and senior staff.

If you work in this area and have not yet had time to complete the survey, which can easily be done in 10 minutes, click the link and have your say​. One lucky participant, chosen at random, will receive a £100 Amazon voucher.

Food safety policing, allergen management

In addition to the survey results, experts will deliver presentations on a range of topics. These will include: food safety policing and monitoring systems post-Brexit; food fraud; allergen management; the latest scientific and technological advances to improve food safety; and managing audits.

Together with the six presentations, the webinar will feature two separate Q&A sessions to give attendees the chance to air their own views and quiz speakers.

Resources for managing food safety are under pressure like never before. Brexit will likely shake up import and export trade rules and raise new quality and safety issues. The drive to minimise packaging waste raises fresh challenges concerning shelf-life, while the constantly evolving threat from allergens prompts continuous re-evaluation of cross-contamination and labelling, particularly in the light of the demand for rapid line changes.

And behind it all are the enemies, from pathogens and fraudsters, poised to undermine the supply chain. What are the emerging threats? How can the industry manage them effectively and get the day job done? How much of an answer can developing technologies offer?’ Food Manufacture​'s Food Safety Briefing will seek to address these questions.
