As part of national Food Safety Week, IFST's Food Safety Group will be organising a Food Safety Culture event at the SCI,14/15 Belgrave Square, London, SW1X 8PS, on Thursday, June 6, between 10:45 -13:00.

A strong food safety culture will ensure that good practice is not only understood but more importantly being followed. Real food safety is what happens when managers and supervisors are not present, and individuals are left to their own devices. This is a real challenge to every link of the international food supply chain. To illustrate the increasing recognition of the importance of food safety culture it has been included in the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Food Safety Issue 8. There is a new appreciation that understanding food safety cultural drivers is a useful addition to the food safety toolbox of training, audit, and testing and risk management. The session reviews current best practice and looks to the future. It also includes a workshop and aims to be interactive. Culture is increasingly cited in reports and papers related to food safety incidents and outbreaks and is also being identified as a significant emerging risk factor in food fraud.The session reviews current best practice and looks to the future.
