GFSI Conference 2021

COVID-19 has been especially tough on the food industry and has affected every stage of the supply chain. Businesses now face the challenge of meeting renewed concerns about food production, processing and distribution against a backdrop of increasingly complex supply chains and stringent legislation. This makes this year’s GFSI Conference more important than ever.

To comply with government guidelines relating to COVID-19, the conference has been reshaped with health and wellbeing in mind. The virtual event will maintain the same high standard of information, education and networking opportunities as past events.
