Creating a Food Safety Culture
June 13 - 15, 2023

Food Safety professionals from around the world will ignite conversations on the tools, strategies, and behavior-based science needed to help create a robust food safety culture within your workplace. This is an exceptional opportunity that you will not want to miss!
 
We welcome food safety professionals from industry, regulatory, academia, and military. Titles of individuals that have attended the program include VP of Global QA operations, Director of FSQA, Food Safety Quality Assurance Manager, VP of Quality Assurance and Food Safety, Food Safety Compliance Specialist, Corporate Food Safety Group Leader, and Food Safety Coordinator—to  name a few! Some executives that attend are also students pursuing their Michigan State University (MSU) Masters in Food Safety degree.

Together, as food safety professionals, you will interact and learn from Frank Yiannas, Food Safety Expert and MSU Adjunct Faculty member. The program will also consist of a guest lecture by Bill Marler, JD, Managing Partner, Marler Clark LLP PS.
