The Food Safety Consortium conference is a summit meeting of Food Safety and Quality Assurance (FSQA) industry experts and government officials. The agenda is comprised of individual presentations, "Ask The Experts" discussion groups, workshops and training programs running concurrently, coupled with overarching plenary sessions paired with a table-top exhibition. The Food Safety Consortium model is based on harnessing the energy and leveraging the knowledge base of many well-respected industry experts. In having these experts run their own conference, workshop, training program, and/or presentation, all under one roof, the model lends itself to being called a “Consortium."
