The Conference for Food Protection brings together representatives from the food industry, government, academia, and consumer organizations to identify and address emerging problems of food safety and to formulate recommendations. The Conference meets biennially to collaboratively discuss the Issues submitted to it.
Between biennial meetings, a representative Executive Board manages the administrative activities of the Conference, as well as the process of submitting the accepted Issue recommendations to FDA, USDA, CDC, and others for consideration and implementation. Committees formed by the Conference and Executive Board are charged to further develop recommendations for submission as Issues at the next biennial meeting. Standing Committees manage assigned tasks for the Executive Board such as planning the Issue submission process and workshop program for the next biennial meeting.
