FoodLogiQ to Join More Than 3,600 Food Safety Pros at IAFP Conference


Three-day conference to provide food safety professionals with a global forum to exchange information on protecting the food supply

Kentucky is known for its bourbon (Cheers, Mr. Beam!), basketball rivalries (Go, Cats and Cards!) and bluegrass music (Bravo, Ricky Skaggs).  It’s also the location of this year’s International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) Annual Meeting, taking place this week in the host city of Louisville. Attendees at the 2019 gathering will have access to current and emerging food safety issues, the latest food science, innovative solutions to new and recurring problems, and the opportunity to network with thousands of food safety professionals from around the globe. Held in various locations throughout North America (2018 was in Salt Lake City, Utah; the 2020 host is Cleveland, Ohio), this meeting has grown over the years to become a leading food safety conference.

Food Safety at the Farmers Market


Many food businesses begin at local farmers markets. They are a fantastic way to get the word out about your new product and to get valuable feedback directly from consumers. Fresh produce, small-batch jams, and locally-made baked goods straight from the producer make these markets a popular destination for thousands of people. Farmers markets are ideal for creating relationships between businesses and local customers. Whether you are at the market with a new product or one that has repeat customers, selling local doesn’t mean food safety should be ignored.
