From December 12, 2017 to January 12, 2018, the Conference for Food Protection (CFP) will be accepting issues for consideration for the 2018 Biennial Conference for Food Protection Meeting.
The CFP brings together representatives from the food industry, government, academia, and consumer organizations to discuss emerging food safety problems and potential solutions. Every other year, CFP provides meeting attendees with an open forum to discuss food safety standards from any source, while seeking to balance the interests of regulators and industry. As a follow-up to each meeting, the CFP Executive Board ensures the proper submission of the previously accepted recommendations to the Food & Drug Administration, United States Department of Agriculture, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other relevant decision makers for consideration and implementation. In addition, committees formed by the Conference and Executive Board are charged to further develop recommendations for submission at the next Biennial Meeting.
