Beyond the Basics – Trending Topics in Food Safety

February 23, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm

If someone asked “Who protects our food supply? What should I worry about?”

would you know how to answer them?

Food safety goes far beyond time and temperature controls! Food professionals need to be trained, truthful, and trusted to help protect the stomachs (and health) of Americans by what we communicate, teach, purchase, cook and serve.

FCS Professionals invite you to expand your food safety knowledge at our professional conference Beyond the Basics – Trending Topics in Food Safety on Friday, February 23, 2018 from 8:00am – 2:30pm at the Edina Country Club.

This program is designed for those who teach about food handling or work with food in any setting. Expert speakers, including Dr. Michael Osterholm, will deliver the program contents. You will learn about:
• the trickle-down impact of infectious disease on the food supply and human health.
• the government’s role in protecting against food fraud that could disrupt the food supply or create health hazards.
• the growing consumer demand for clean labels and full disclosure regarding their food wherever they may be eating.
And, gain a better understanding and appreciation of the legal consequences for deceptive communications or causing a foodborne illness.

Fee includes 5 outstanding subject matter experts presenting 4 hours of pre-approved continuing education, networking opportunities, and a wonderful brunch. For complete program details and association education approvals see the attached brochure or visit our program web page.

Register (on Event Brite) prior to February 13th to get early bird rates.

We hope to see you at the conference!!
