CFI Think Tank

Our biggest event yet is finally here! And it is only the 2nd ever to take place in CFI history. Mark your calendar for April 3-5, 2023, as CFI partners with Food Safety Tech for three wonderful days of food safety education and networking! Join us for The Food Safety Tech’s Hazards Conference Series + CFI Think Tank, “Industry & Academia Advancing Food Safety Practices, Technology and Research. 

The program brings together leading minds in industry, academia, standards and regulation to provide in-depth education and discussion on the most significant pathogenic and chemical risks facing the food industry today. Building on the popularity of the Food Safety Tech Hazards virtual series, the in-person event kicks off on Monday, April 3rd, and will offer practical guidance and cutting-edge research on the detection, mitigation, control and regulation of the most significant foodborne illness risks.

The CFI Food Safety Think Tank on Wednesday, April 5th will bring food safety experts together to take a deeper look at the hazards discussed during the first two days of the conference. Participants will brainstorm in small groups to develop a roadmap on research, innovation, policy, and prevention measures that need to be taken to make our food supply safer in the future. The CFI Research, Networking and Fundraising Dinner on Tuesday, April 4th will raise funds to help support research initiatives carried out by CFI students. We hope to see you there! Learn more and register here.

There will also be an in-person, post-conference Food Safety Culture Design Workshop, led by CFI's Gina Nicholson Kramer and Sage Media's Austin Welch on Thursday, April 6th to conclude your food safety conference week! All of which will be taking place on The Ohio State University's campus. Workshop registration can be found here.

“Food safety hazards continue to be a challenge for all aspects of the food industry from farm to fork,” said Rick Biros, publisher of Food Safety Tech and director of the Food Safety Consortium conference and Food Safety Tech Hazards series. “The detection, mitigation and control of food safety hazards issues must be discussed among peers and best practices must be shared, something you can’t do virtually. The human connection is so important for conference attendees. Whether it’s a random connection over lunch, a one-on-one question with a speaker after a presentation or a seat next to a new friend in a learning session—connecting with others is what makes events so valuable. We are excited to bring this program, designed to help facilitate this much needed critical thinking and sharing of best practices, to OSU.”
