The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Stop Foodborne Illness, a non-profit public health organization, are collaborating on a webinar series that explores food safety culture, one of the core elements in FDA’s New Era of Smarter Food Safety initiative.
The series, entitled “Collaborating on Culture in the New Era of Smarter Food Safety,” begins on Thursday, November 4, 2021 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET. This first session is called “Key Concepts in Addressing Food Safety Culture as a Science – Not a Slogan.”
The New Era of Smarter Food Safety blueprint states that dramatic improvements in reducing the burden of foodborne illness cannot be made without doing more to influence the beliefs, attitudes, and, most importantly, the behaviors of people and the actions of organizations.
The webinar series will engage experts from the public and private sectors in a collaborative exchange of ideas and experiences related to the importance of a robust food safety culture in helping to ensure safe food production.
The series will have valuable information for both those well-versed on, and those just learning about, food safety culture.
