GFSI conference addresses ‘turbulent times’

The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), part of The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF), has scheduled its 22nd annual conference, “Delivering Food in Turbulent Times: The Need for Agility & Resilience” from April 24-27 in Atlanta.

The three-day conference will be at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta.

The GFSI annual conference, in partnership with industry organizations, is the meeting place for decision-makers from across the public and private supply chain to share knowledge, strengthen their networks and do business.

Following last year’s in-person reunion in Barcelona, this year’s global event will host more than 600 food industry leaders from more than 50 countries. The 2022 conference attendees included The Coca-Cola Co., Dole Food Co, General Mills, Mondelez International, Pick N Pay, The Kroger Co. and Walmart.

“After last year’s successful return to an in-person GFSI Annual Conference, we’re excited to see what this year’s event will bring,” Erica Sheward, director of the Global Food Safety Initiative, said in a news release. “Though the initial uncertainties and struggles of the early pandemic have since fallen away, we still face unprecedented global challenges that affect the food and ingredient supply chain. As such, it’s more important than ever that industry experts and leaders across all sectors and verticals come together to discuss the best way forward.”

The conference program will feature speakers that include CEOs, public authorities, renowned experts and academics, industry leaders, innovators and grassroots players. Attendees can select from sessions across three tracks — Benchmarking and Harmonization, Capability Building, and Public-Private Partnerships Collaboration. Sessions will center around food safety and the unprecedented times of economic uncertainty, climate change, geopolitical crisis and the disruption in food supply chains which have significantly impacted access to safe and secure food across the globe.
