Over 500 top food safety executives from China and the rest of world will meet at the CROWNE PLAZA CHENGDU WEST, Chengdu, China.
The GFSI Focus Day aims to provide local stakeholders in the food industry an opportunity to find out more about the Global Food Safety Initiative but it will also serve as a unique opportunity for networking and knowledge exchange.
On these occasions, a selection of speakers from both global and local companies share their experiences of managing food safety in their organizations within the GFSI framework, as well as the local top topics. Delegates receive a complete step-by-step introduction to the GFSI and learn about the added value and benefits of adopting the GFSI approach.
The GFSI Focus Day aims to provide Chinese stakeholders in the food industry an opportunity to find out more about the Global Food Safety Initiative but it will also serve as a unique opportunity for networking and knowledge exchange.
As GFSI is an industry-driven initiative and as more and more buying companies begin to request that their supply chain partners achieve certification against a GFSI recognised scheme, there is need for communication on exactly what this means for a business.
5 reasons for food safety professionals to come to the GFSI Focus Day:
• Go back to basics and get a complete introduction to the Global Food Safety Initiative - the principles behind it, an overview of certification and accreditation, information on the GFSI recognised schemes and insight on how even small businesses can implement the GFSI principles within their company.
• Hear case studies, success stories and best practices from companies that have implemented GFSI.
• Learn from speakers who have in-depth experience of GFSI through their years of collaboration with the initiative; learn from speakers who have innovative perspective from local best practice.
• Network with fellow food safety professionals.
• Get a glimpse of food safety management systems in the China market.
The GFSI China Local Group was founded in 2013 and aims to elevate consumer confidence in food safety in China by leveraging GFSI’s philosophy and approach to harmonise and improve food safety management systems in Chinese companies.
The group also aims to establish a mutual recognition system based on GFSI’s vision to connect food purchasers and manufacturers, advancing the “once certified, recognised everywhere” idea in the Chinese market.
Furthermore, the Local Group provides a platform to promote exchange and collaboration among all stakeholders (government, industry, and academia, etc.) to advance food safety in China and globally.
