PMMI, the Reston, Va., owner and producer of the PACK EXPO tradeshows, announced it will team with B2B media company BNP Media, the Troy, Mich.-based parent company of Refrigerated & Frozen Foods, to bring the latest iteration of the Food Safety Summit Resource Center to PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013, Sept. 23-25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The Food Safety Summit Resource Center, a PACK EXPO constant since 2010, brings together Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) who can speak to the regulations and implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) as well as other important food safety issues, including food packaging, HACCP, economic fraud, allergen safety and regulations, labeling, pest control, sanitation and traceability.
It’s a place for practical advice and insight, and this year, it’s arriving at a particularly critical time, says Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO, PMMI.
“FSMA has headed into a new phase. Rules have been proposed and we’re now in a period of public comment,” says Yuska. “I expect PACK EXPO exhibitors and attendees will have a lot to talk about in terms of food safety. The subject matter experts BNP brings to the Food Safety Summit Resource Center will be immensely helpful.”
BNP Media, producer of the annual Food Safety Summit, and PMMI will jointly promote the Food Safety Summit Resource Center.
“This is our fourth PACK EXPO show, and we’re thrilled to be back,” said Scott Wolters, director, Food Safety Summit. “With the ongoing changes in food manufacturing and distribution, the experts we bring to PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013 will certainly have a lot to talk about.”
The Food Safety Summit Resource Center will be located in Booth 7332 in the Processing Zone. Details regarding programming and the agenda will be available in coming months. Go to www.packexpo.com for more information.
