Welcome to the 19th (and 3rd virtual) Guelph Food Safety Seminars (GFSS) Symposium.

Inflation: The New Foodborne Illness?

What effect does inflation have on the safety and security of our food? Composed of a series of seminars, this year’s Symposium will examine how rising costs are affecting food safety along the food supply chain; the challenges and benefits of food rescue; and the role alternative protein sources play. A panel of experts will join our last session to address questions on how to safely stretch our food dollars.

Session 1: At what cost? Food safety and rising prices
Session 2: Waste Not; Want Not: Food Diversion at Its Finest
Session 3: Alternative proteins – Are we there yet?
Session 4: How to Stretch your Food Dollar Safely – Q&A Session

The Symposium is free but registration is required. Register for as many sessions as you would like. Details can be found at: https://www.uoguelph.ca/foodscience/19th-annual-guelph-food-safety-seminars-symposium

The Guelph Food Safety Seminars (GFSS) began in 2004 to provide a forum in which to share timely and pertinent food safety topics. The GFSS Organizing Committee plans seminars throughout the year and an annual symposium. Our objective is to bring together people from the Guelph Food Safety Network and others who are interested in the risk management approach to food quality and safety to learn, educate, illuminate, and discuss issues of common interest and broaden networks. The GFSS is a partnership in agri-food safety: AAFC, CFIA; CIPHI (Ontario); Health Canada; NSF International; OMAFRA; PHAC; University of Guelph (Department of Food Science and CRIFS).
