GFSI has been supporting the global food safety ecosystem for over 23 years. Bringing together the largest food and drink retailers and manufacturers in the world to harmonise third party food safety standards against their benchmarking requirements. For anyone working in the food safety arena t is vital that you understand what it is and more importantly what it isn't that GFSI does. This workshop will be hosted by GFSI itself and you will learn first-hand from those at GFSI what their priorities are, how they work with their multiple stakeholders and what that could mean for you.
1. What is GFSI? Busting some myths about what the Global Food safety Initiative does and what is doesn't do
2. Benchmarking and harmonisation - a GFSI masterclass in how and why GFSI benchmarks 3rd party food safety standards against its requirements - what does this mean for the global food safety ecosystem?
3. Food safety capability building - building food safety capabilities is a vital part of the work that GFSI does to support improved food safety systems globally. GFSI will share what it currently does to support food safety capability building and what it plans to do in the future.
4.Public Private Partnerships - how GFSI works alongside international standards setting bodies such as Codex and regulators globally to support collective interests around food safety assurance, capability building and data sharing
The sessions will be highly interactive and provide a unique opportunity for attendees to hear from GFSI first-hand
