Conference for Food Protection
We welcome you to the Conference for Food Protection (CFP) website. We are honored to serve as the Chair and Vice Chair of the CFP, and we encourage you to become a member of this outstanding organization.
The Conference for Food Protection is a non-profit organization which originated in 1971. It was created to provide a formal process whereby members of industry, regulatory, academia, consumer, and professional organizations are afforded equal input in the development and/or modification of food safety guidance. Such guidance is incorporated into food safety laws and regulations at all levels of government throughout the United States.
The CFP provides individuals a voice in the food safety standards development process in several ways. First, CFP members can join Standing Committees of the Conference and Council Committees that are formed to continue discussion on an Issue deliberated at a biennial meeting of the CFP. Second, Issues for Conference deliberation may be submitted by anyone who has an interest in or concern about food safety. Third, CFP members can volunteer to become a member of one of the three Councils that deliberate Issues related to Laws and Regulations; Administration, Education and Certification; and Science and Technology at the biennial meeting.
We hope you will mark your calendar for our next biennial meeting which will be March 24-28, 2025 in Denver, Colorado. Working together with all constituents involved in the food industry, we are able to develop and implement policies and recommendations to strengthen and enhance the overall safety of food for everyone.
