Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, the IFC 9th International Food Safety Forum has been postponed until the risk has subsided. We will update this site as soon as we identify the new date. Thank you for your patience as we work out the details. We hope to see you at the IFC 9th International Food Safety Forum later this year.

Better Food Safety, Better Business

IFC invites retailers, manufacturers and other players in the food industry with an interest in food safety to join its 9th International Food Safety Forum. The theme of this year’s forum Better Food Safety, Better Business will highlight how investments in food safety and the fostering of a food safety culture can unlock business opportunities and enhance financial performance.
