Proud Diamond Sponsors of the GFSI Conference 2021

Themed ‘Food Safety: Reset, Rethink, Recharge’, the 2021 GFSI Conference will take place from 23rd-25th March.

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.

For the 20th edition of the GFSI Conference, the event will be fully virtual for the first time. 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.

Join us at the conference to gain insight into the latest science, technology and best practice that is currently being harnessed to deliver global food safety. You will have the opportunity to hear from our own industry-leading experts, as well as a range of other renowned specialists so you can stay informed of the latest trends, challenges and solutions to protect your food business.

The Global Food Safety Initiative

The Global Food Safety Initiative provides thought leadership and guidance on food safety management across the entire supply chain. Every year, around 1200 experts in retail, manufacturing, food service industries, governments and service providers, from over 50 different countries, meet at the GFSI Conference. Here, they share knowledge on changing demographics, evolving consumer demand and developments in science and technology.

The Digital Ecosystem Experience

New for GFSI 2021, our exclusive virtual event, the Digital Ecosystem Experience, offered the opportunity for attendees to explore an interactive, virtual environment showcasing the power of global data to stay one step ahead of pests.
