The Food Safety Summit has announced its education program for the 25th annual conference and trade show set for May 8–11, 2023, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. 

The conference program, developed by the Summit’s Educational Advisory Board (EAB), will feature sessions led by industry thought leaders, a keynote presentation focused on Risk Culture: How to Balance Risks for the Safety of Consumers, Team Members, and the Environment?, five certificate/certification courses, the 11th Annual Town Hall, and opportunities for community networking.

“The food safety industry has evolved over the last 25 years, and the Food Safety Summit’s Educational Advisory Board has developed a thoughtful and inspiring education program offering sessions that look back on the last 30 years after the Jack in the Box incident and looking to future innovations in robotics, AI, cold chain, and much more,” said Gillian Kelleher, CEO of Kelleher Consultants LLC and Chair of the Summit EAB. “Attendees to the 2023 Summit will have access to industry leaders, be able to gain certificates in courses, see the latest technological advances offered by leading vendors, network with their peers and speakers, and hear thought-provoking education sessions.”

More than 1,500 food safety professionals are expected to attend the Summit’s education sessions. There will be dedicated Exhibit Hall time for attendees to learn about new solutions, engage in small group discussions in the Community Hub, attend free presentations by food safety experts on the Solutions Stage and in the Tech Tent, enjoy lunch, and network with peers. Networking events include a Welcome Reception, as well as the Food Safety Summit Gives Back reception benefiting Stop Foodborne Illness.
