Event Title
Collaborating on Culture in the New Era of Smarter Food Safety
May 11, 2023

May 11, 2023
3:45 PM - 5:00 PM ET

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,” began on November 4, 2021. 

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 engages 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.
