The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and STOP Foodborne Illness have announced the fourth webinar in the “Collaborating on Culture in the New Era of Smarter Food Safety” series that explores food safety culture.

The webinar is titled “What More Do You Want to Know About Food Safety Culture?” and will be broadcast live from the International Association for Food Protection 2022 Annual Meeting on Aug. 3, 2022, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. EDT. 

Speakers and attendees will engage in a question-and-answer session on various food safety culture topics. Registration is available for both in-person and virtual attendance. 

The webinar series is entitled “Collaborating on Culture in the New Era of Smarter Food Safety.” It engages experts from the public and private sectors in a collaborative exchange of ideas and experiences related to the importance of a robust food safety culture in helping to ensure safe food production.  

Food safety culture is one of the core elements in FDA’s “New Era of Smarter Food Safety” blueprint, which states that dramatic improvements in reducing the burden of foodborne illness cannot be made without doing more to influence the beliefs, attitudes, and, most importantly, the behaviors of people and the actions of organizations.

About STOP: STOP Foodborne Illness is a public health non-profit organization. Since 1994, it has focused efforts on telling the “why” of food safety with personal advocate stories. “We are a small but mighty team of six and work tirelessly to end illness and death due to something as basic as eating because we are all at risk of foodborne illness,” according to the group’s website.
