CIEH to hold flagship Food Safety Conference online

09 October 2020, Ross Matthewman

For the first time ever, CIEH is holding its flagship Food Safety Conference online, in partnership with UKHospitality. 

From the current challenges for food safety during the coronavirus pandemic to the incoming changes to allergen labelling rules, the conference will explore the latest trends, innovations and challenges in the safe food supply chain.

Being held over the course of three days from 21 -23 October, a series of high-profile plenary talks and thought-provoking sessions will discuss the challenges for food safety and provide measures to assist attendees in managing the evolving food landscape.

Emily Miles, CEO of the Food Standards Agency (FSA), will be delivering a keynote speech on modernising regulation, exploring the challenges and opportunities facing the FSA and their priorities for the future.

Steven Glass, Director of Global Food Safety at the event’s key sponsor, JustEat, will be discussing how they managed the spike in demand for food delivery from locked-down customers during the pandemic.

The conference will also look at key issues such as imported food controls post-Brexit, immigration in food premises and managing food safety in challenging environments, alongside hearing from the Chief Scientific Advisor at the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Founder of the Institute for Global Food Security.

Debbie Wood, Executive Director of Membership and External Affairs at CIEH said:

“We are delighted to welcome attendees to our first ever online food safety conference. Now in its eleventh year, our flagship conference is always a fantastic event for food safety professionals working across the food supply chain.

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Brexit on the horizon and new allergen rules coming into force next year, there is no better time for us to come together to share best practice and explore the challenges and opportunities for food safety and security.”
