Registrations for the second annual Food Safety Summit South Africa, set for June 8-9, are open and an invitation is extended to all food safety professionals to join the virtual event.
Delegates can register for one or both days. Early bird rates apply until April 30. There are also sponsorship opportunities that include speaking slots for sponsors to showcase their services and supplies.
The Food Safety Summit 2021 is a team effort between Anelich Consulting and Food Focus. The theme for this year’s summit is “Teaming up for safe food now for a healthy tomorrow.”
The inaugural Food Safety Summit South Africa in 2020 focused on lessons learned during the global COVID pandemic. This year, though the pandemic is still top of mind, it is essential that attention is paid to the food safety issues facing the food industry globally, according to event organizers.
“Our speaker line-up once again consists of some of the most well-respected food safety professionals nationally and internationally,” said professor Lucia Anelich from Anelich Consulting, Summit co-organizer and speaker.
“We are focussing on all types of food safety hazards, including mycotoxins, a variety of biological hazards, allergens, environmental monitoring, reuse of water in the food industry, food fraud, food safety culture, and more.”
According to Linda Jackson of Food Focus, one of the co-organizers, the program this year, ensures more practical interaction with the delegates, for example, on hazards vs. risks and food safety culture, several roundtable discussions and ample question time, as well as greater ease of use on the virtual platform.
The summit is aimed at food safety managers/professionals, food scientists, food technologists, risk managers, food science/food technology students (special student rates apply), quality control managers, quality assurance managers, regulators and anyone working in the food industry.
