PARIS, 30 September 2019: The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) is pleased to announce the launch of its new website, the first complete overhaul of mygfsi.com since 2014. The launch comes as GFSI prepares to open registrations for the 2020 GFSI Conference, to be held 25–28 February in Seattle, and readies the platform to facilitate what is predicted to be the most heavily-attended GFSI Conference yet.
Created with the user experience in mind, the new website — still at mygfsi.com — has a modern, simplified design that echoes that of the recently-revamped The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) website. This streamlined visual environment emphasises GFSI’s place within the CGF galaxy of initiatives.
All those seeking to learn more about GFSI, including food industry professionals, certification programme owners, academics, regulators and members of the media, will find the answers to their questions at the new mygfsi.com. The website, which now integrates information regarding both GFSI and the GFSI Conference, has become an easily-navigable, one-stop shop for the wealth of useful content GFSI has created in nearly 20 years of work. Visitors can implement tools for safer food, register for upcoming events, join the global community and learn about GFSI’s strategic objectives, such as harmonisation, benchmarking, capability building and knowledge sharing — all in fewer clicks than ever before.
The website will continue to be updated on a regular basis with news, videos, event listings and blog posts, including guest contributions from member companies that are driving positive change globally. Users may subscribe to GFSI News to receive email notifications regarding these updates and other useful content.
About the Global Food Safety Initiative
The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) brings together key actors of the food industry to collaboratively drive continuous improvement in food safety management systems around the world. With a vision of Safe food for consumers everywhere, food industry leaders created GFSI in 2000 to find collaborative solutions to collective concerns, notably to reduce food safety risks, audit duplication and costs while building trust throughout the supply chain. The GFSI community works on a volunteer basis and is composed of the world’s leading food safety experts from retail, manufacturing and food service companies, as well as international organisations, governments, academia and service providers to the global food industry. GFSI is powered by The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF), a global industry network working to support Better Lives Through Better Business.
