About the Event

Based on the impact of COVID-19, the safety of the attendees and global health recommendations regarding large, in-person gatherings the Meat industry Food Safety Conference has transitioned to a virtual event this year.

You won’t want to miss this newly relaunched meeting that will provide valuable insights for the beef, pork and processed meat industries on today’s most critical food safety issues. The conference will bring together top experts from industry, academia and government to cover such topics as pathogen control, foreign material control, recall preparedness, interventions, use of laboratory data, auditing, industry innovation, and much more. This virtual conference will provide practical problem solving for the entire industry, large and small.

In addition to the sessions, the conference provides a supplier showcase featuring the latest food safety solutions.

More information coming soon.
