Posted by on May 10, 2012 in Blog | 0 comments

Thursday 17 May 2012, Radisson Blu, Glasgow



For the food and drink industry, regulation and the industry standards have always been a controversial topic. But now, in a tough economic climate and an increasingly competitive market, this issue will make the Symposium a ‘must attend’ event for everyone involved in the industry.


To mark the 10th anniversary of what has now become a key event in the food industry calendar, the day promises to inform, challenge, debate and discuss issues industry relating to regulation, audit and standards.


The event will cover topical and critical issues for the industry including the future delivery of the Food Standards Agency’s functions in Scotland, how regulation can best help the industry to continue to grow, a glimpse into the past with a rundown on how we got to current standards and a vision for the future regulatory environment and how that best meets the needs of suppliers, retailers and consumers. Top this off with a variety of case studies direct from industry and retail.


Speakers featuring at the event include industry, the Scottish Government, the Food Standards Agency, SAI Global and Asda




Delegate fee: SFDF/REHIS/IFST members: £70; non-members: £95, students: £45


The symposium series is run by three of Scotland 's most respected organisations – the Scottish Food and Drink Federation (SFDF), the Institute of Food Science & Technology (IFST) and the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS). The event attracts representatives from all parts of the food and drink industry, government and its agencies and the enforcement community.


Quotes from last year’s event include: “very enjoyable and informative day” to “well worth the trip from Wales”
