Food safety symposium coming to Orlando
If you’re subscribed to the FDA’s recall notice e-mail distribution list, you’ve no doubt seen quite a few voluntary recall notices linking Salmonella to black pepper, Salmonella in hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and most recently Salmonella in sesame seeds. Food safety issues continue to attract media, legislative, and regulatory attention, and to help our members enhance their food safety programs, PMA is kicking off its 2010 Food Safety Symposia series, starting April 6 at the CHEP Innovation Center in Orlando, Florida.
Hosted by CHEP and presented by N2N global, the Orlando symposium will translate the latest produce-specific food safety information into strategies that company leaders can understand, communicate and implement across their organizations. Attendance is limited to 50 to ensure a high level of attendee participation.
Featured speakers at this event are PMA Chief Science & Technology Officer Dr. Bob Whitaker, PMA Chief Operating Officer and crisis communications expert Lorna Christie, and product liability and foodborne illness litigation specialist Elliot Olsen, Esq. These experts will lead attendees through interactive discussions and scenario planning, to help attendees develop actionable strategies to protect their companies and lead to greater return on investment.
