At the heart of FoodLogiQ’s work is a commitment to building a more connected and safe food supply chain. Facilitating compliance, data quality and millions of Critical Tracking Events (over 67 million, to be exact!) is only a piece of the puzzle. We know that bringing our partners together—creating a platform for knowledge sharing, collaboration and community—is an essential piece of achieving a stronger and more effective food system.

That’s why this year, in addition to covering innovative use cases of the FoodLogiQ Connect platform from companies like Tyson and Dine Brands, we're taking on important topics like empowering women in the industry, democratizing food businesses, connecting as an industry, how food safety responds to crisis and building technical interoperability.

Here are the top 5 things to look forward to during reCONNECT 2021, the virtual edition.

1. Industry Insights on Technology and Traceability

The food industry takes tremendous strides towards realizing traceability each year. And, with additional regulatory alignment on tech-enabled traceability being codified into new food safety modernization rules, it’s more important than ever to understand where the industry is headed. Gain insights from brands with mature traceability programs like Chipotle and Chick-fil-A, and learn how solution providers are working together to secure an interoperable technology ecosystem with GS1 and FoodLogiQ.

2. Live Roundtable Discussions

The Virtual reCONNECT Roundtables will provide a small group setting for deeper dives on the future of RFID, building a food safety network, tech-enabled auditing, foodservice reflections and more. Get face time with industry leaders, and talk through pressing food industry topics with your peers and the FoodLogiQ team.

3. Innovative Uses of the FoodLogiQ Connect Platform

We’re more excited than ever for reCONNECT use case sessions led by food safety experts from some of the most innovative companies in the industry, including Dine Brands, Whole Foods Market, First Watch, Tyson, IPC/Subway, and more. Learn how our customers are building smarter businesses with FoodLogiQ Connect data, as well as creative ways to leverage technology to garner FSQA buy-in company-wide.

Don’t miss essential informational sessions on evolving best practices, in addition to live roundtables with leaders from regulatory bodies. Gain a deeper understanding of digitization, RFID, global certifications, GS1 standards, and join the FDA’s New Era Technology Team Leader Andrew Kennedy for a live Q&A on the proposed traceability rule.
