Over 1,200 food industry leaders from 50+ countries attend the global GFSI Conference, which has become the meeting place for decision-makers from across the supply chain and around the world, from the private and public sectors alike. Participants share knowledge, strengthen their networks, showcase their learnings and do business.
The GFSI Conference stage features a wide range of hand-picked speakers: renowned experts and academics, CEOs, public authorities, industry leaders, innovators and grassroots players. Their presentations offer insight into the latest science, technology and collaborative tools being leveraged for food safety around the world.
In consideration of public health issues related to COVID-19, our Events Team at the CGF has been working hard to reshape the 2021 GFSI Conference. The commitment – to continue to deliver value to the community while safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our colleagues and delegates.
Efforts are underway to reshape the 2021 conference as either a virtual event, or a hybrid event, with virtual components on offer alongside a smaller physical event in Europe next spring. Please bear with us as we work to deliver the unique global rendezvous for food safety leaders, be it virtual, physical or hybrid.
We expect details to be announced in the autumn. Please continue to stay tuned to GFSI News (via email, our website or social media) for further updates. See all the key points and quotable moments from the 2020 GFSI Conference in our Executive Summary.

A Call to Food Safety Innovation
This year we’re doing things a bit differently. We want GFSI 2021 to showcase the best of cutting-edge technologies in the food safety landscape. In a continuation of the Shark Tank sessions first introduced at the GFSI Seattle edition, this year’s call for proposals will focus on startups: the real innovators, those that have developed pioneering solutions that break new ground and advance safety and trust in the food industry. These sessions will run for a half-day so spaces will be very limited. Read the Call For Proposals here and use this Submission Form to send us your proposal!
The place to be to stay abreast of latest trends, legislations, challenges and solutions. Delegates learn about the latest advances in the science, technology and collaborative tools being leveraged for food safety around the world.
So you’ve put in place a world-class food safety system or solution, measured results and grown your business. It’s only natural that now you’d like to tell the world about it. Best-practice sharing is what GFSI is all about.
Delegates hear from renowned experts and academics, CEOs, public authorities, industry leaders, innovators and grassroots players.
After all, no one works in isolation and this might just be the place to show companies who are serious about food safety why your solution can help them get there.
Delegates often cite the valuable exchanges they had with others facing the same challenges. They learn how others are managing food safety in diﬀerent parts of the world – or in other parts of the supply chain.
With some 1,200 global food safety experts in attendance, the GFSI Conference is the perfect place to do business, expand your network and make new friends with like-minded objectives.
