Our food safety conference is back, and this time it’s FREE to centres!

Highfield’s food safety conference is the most anticipated event in our calendar, which is why we were so disappointed the 2020 conference in Birmingham was unable to go ahead due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

This year’s conference will be held virtually from Tuesday 8 June – Thursday 10 June in a series of live webinar broadcasts, bringing together some of the world’s leading food safety experts and organisations.

As the world continues to fight the pandemic, we know that maintaining consumer trust in food safety is going to be an essential part of the food industry’s recovery and growth in the months and years to come.

Supported by the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST) and RHE Global, this year’s virtual conference is aimed at professionals working in food retail, food manufacturing, food service and catering, as well as food safety tutors and environmental health officers.

Providing access to knowledge and giving back to the food safety community are always high on our agenda. This is why we’re making all our 2021 conference webinars FREE to attend for Highfield registered trainers and centres! It’s our way of thanking you for your support during such a difficult time.
