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 the meetings, the representative Executive Board, manages the process of submitting the accepted 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 at the next Biennial Meeting. Standing committees manage assigned tasks for the Executive Board such as planning the issue submission process and program for the next conference.
