IAFP 2015

Each year, the International Association for Food Protection hosts an Annual Meeting, providings attendees with information on current and emerging food safety issues, the latest 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, this meeting has grown over the years to become the leading food safety conference worldwide.  IAFP 2015 was held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon.  This year's meeting was Saturday, July 25 - Tuesday, July 28.

The IAFP Annual Meeting is attended by more than 3,000 of the top industry, academic and governmental food safety professionals from six continents. This renowned event owes its reputation and success to the quantity, quality and diversity of each year’s program; the quality and relevance of exhibits sharing the latest in available technologies; leading experts speaking on a variety of timely topics; and special recognition of outstanding professionals and students for their contributions in the food safety field.
