This year's conference "Creative Solutions for Sustainable Food Systems" is organised by the Food Control Department of Dubai Municipality and is supported by the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP). 

Various workshops, technical sessions, and poster presentations during the conference feature more than 200 presenters from all across the globe. The programs are designed to suit the food industry, regulatory authorities and the students who are working in the field of food safety or interested in it. 1,700 delegates attended the conference in 2014, a number that has been increasing each year. The growing number of delegates clearly indicates the interest the conference has been able to generate and we are sure that the programs will help all those involved in the development, implementation, and maintenance of food safety programs.

DIFSC will also feature a food safety exhibition.
