You won’t want to miss this newly designed hybrid experience that will provide valuable insights into the meat industry's most critical food safety issues.

This hybrid conference will bring together top experts from industry and academia to cover such topics as pathogen control, sanitation, foreign material control, responding to regulatory actions, risk assessment, recall preparation, industry innovation, and much more. With more than 24 hours of educational content and collaboration, this event will provide practical problem solving for the entire industry, large and small.

Don’t be left behind! The meat industry is uniting for the future by committing to the Protein PACT, which provides robust metrics for continuous improvement in food safety, among other operational areas.  Your participation in industry events will be critical to understanding the metrics and goals that will be driving the industry forward over the next 10 years. These metrics will be announced for public comment in mid-July. The cumulative food safety events presented as part of this conference will help you improve your own food safety systems and provide an understanding of the Protein PACT and the role that individual companies will play.
