It’s All about Food Safety

food safety summit

The 18th Annual Food Safety Summit took place, for the very first time in early May in Rosemont, IL. Solutions for Today, Planning for Tomorrow was the theme of the 2016 summit and I had the privilege of attending a workshop organized by Elsevier authors Gary Ades, Patti Leith, and Ken Leith.

The workshop was based on their recently published book, Food Safety: A Road Map to Success. The workshop had a full room of about 60 people who were all very much engaged in what this book offers. The publication was extremely well received and people were asking if and where they could buy the book. Additionally, the book was also mentioned in the Key Note Presentation that welcomed almost 1,700 food safety professionals. It was a very proud moment for the authors and me as Elsevier’s representative.

Food Safety: A Road Map to Success is a practical, comprehensive roadmap for defining, developing, and implementing an effective food safety culture within an organization, including communication strategies, instructions for developing written guidelines, and specific recommendations for change management approaches to greatly reduce food safety risk.

Food Science & Nutrition

The field of food science is highly interdisciplinary, spanning areas of chemistry, engineering, biology, and many more. Researchers in these areas achieve fundamental advances in our understanding of agriculture, nutrition, and food-borne illness, and develop new technologies, like food processing methods and packaging material. Against a backdrop of global issues of food supply and regulation, this important work is supported by Elsevier’s catalog of books, eBooks, and journals in food science, considered essential resources for students, instructors, and health professionals worldwide.
