RESTON, VA.—The Food Safety Summit Resource Center (Booth #S-7632), organized and brought to you by the Food Safety Summit, will return to the 2015 PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Pharma EXPO.
PACK EXPO, held September 28-30, 2015 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Food Safety Summit is owned and produced by PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.
The Food Safety Summit Resource Center, a regular PACK EXPO feature since 2010, brings together experts in food production and food safety for a series of educational opportunities.
Subject matter experts will provide information focused on best practices and recent advances on the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) as well as important topics including HACCP, food fraud, federal and state regulations, environmental monitoring, allergens and compliance issues.
“Since FSMA was announced in 2011, manufacturers have, out of necessity, been hyper-focused on food safety issues,” says president and chief executive officer Charles D. Yuska. “The Food Safety Summit Resource Center gives PACK EXPO attendees a chance to get the specific information they need to stay abreast of this important issue.”
FSMA rules, which are still in the process of being finalized, attack food safety concerns proactively, taking a stance that favors prevention over recovery.
“Food safety violations and product recalls will cost your company money and devalue your brand. That’s unacceptable at best. The Food Safety Summit Resource Center is a place where PACK EXPO attendees address their specific questions with leading experts — so they can return to the office better educated and ready to put plans into motion to avoid violations and recalls,” adds Food Safety Summit event director Scott Wolters.
PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2015 welcomes the co-located Pharma EXPO (produced in cooperation with the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering) for the first time. More than 30,000 attendees and 2,000 exhibitors will be on hand for the show and its more than 800,000 net square feet of exhibit space. Registration is $30, but increases to $100 after Sept. 14.
