  • Big thanks to all of you who submitted proposals for the 2018 GFSI conference! We are fortunate to have over 100 amazing abstracts to work with as we craft the programme.

  • This has been a wonderful opportunity for a face-to-face meeting ahead of the next few months of remote collaboration! We understand that traveling to Japan for the 2018 conference may represent a larger investment for many delegates – that’s why we’re working harder than ever this year to make sure it’s worth your trip!

  • One of the things we’re doing today is looking closely at feedback delegates have provided us in previous years. As we build the programme, we’re looking for unique and thought-provoking topics that will really add value. Two key factors are irrevocably changing the face of the food industry right now: 1) changing consumer demographics and 2) rapidly developing technology. This is creating an interesting polarity and the industry needs to be more attentive and nimble than ever before.
