About the GFSI Conference

With a focus on "One Connected World. One Safe Food Supply", this year’s event will explore the interconnectedness of the food industry, where a product made and sold in one country may contain ingredients sourced from a dozen others. In order to protect food safety, save resources and ease trade, the industry must adhere to standards that promote sustainability and protect all consumers equally.

Over 1,200 food industry leaders will gather from more than 50 countries for this annual rendezvous for the advancement of food safety worldwide – recognized as the meeting place for decision-makers from across the supply chain and around the world.

We look forward to meeting you at our booth.
