Holiday Edition of FOCUS, the GFSF Newsletter

The November-December edition of FOCUS, GFSF’s newsletter, has just been released. Included are a letter from the Chairman, Richard Gilmore; an article about the effects of Brexit on food safety; an update on the Food Safety Project of Beijing Technology Innovation Action Plan; an update on blockchain applications to enhance food safety compliance; and the GFSF Calendar of upcoming events.

The Chairman’s letter highlights our key successes in the course of the year, including a successful Summit starting in Yanqi Lake, followed by a half-day session at an e-platform organic food company auditorium. Some registrants then joined a delegation visit to Yantai, Shandong province, to meet with local food industry representatives and new ag tech companies. The letter points to fruitful collaborations with the World Bank’s Global Food Safety Partnership, with JIFSAN (U. of Maryland, Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition), the Food Industry Association in Singapore, and Food Protection and Defense Institute. As noted in the letter, GFSF will be hosting workshops for food safety liability insurance and offering e-courses on food safety in Chinese.

The holiday issue of FOCUS invites new members to take advantage of holiday membership rates. For further information, please contact Anne Sansbury, GIC Group: asansbury@gicgroup.com
