Each year, the International Association for Food Protection hosts an Annual Meeting, providing attendees with information on current and emerging food safety issues, the latest science, innovative solutions to new and recurring problems, and the opportunity to network with thousands of food safety professionals from around the globe. Held in various locations throughout North America, this meeting has grown over the years to become the leading food safety conference worldwide. IAFP 2023 was held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
The IAFP Annual Meeting is attended by more than 3,800 of the top industry, academic and governmental food safety professionals from six continents. This renowned event owes its reputation and success to the quantity, quality, and diversity of each year’s program; the quality and relevance of exhibits sharing the latest in available technologies; leading experts speaking on a variety of timely topics; and special recognition of outstanding professionals and students for their contributions in the food safety field.
Each year ICFMH is present at these meetings, just like IAFP delegation is present on our FoodMicro conferences. This year ICFMH board members, Sara Bover i Cid, Luca Cocolin and Tom Ross, as well as ICFMH ex-vice president Larry Beuchat joined Andreja in Toronto. Next time ICFMH and IAFP will meet is in Burgos. Make sure you also join us on our 28th International ICFMH Conference FOOD MICRO 2024 in Burgos and see state-of-the-art food microbiology science.
