September is National Food Safety Education Month and in addition to sharing various pieces of educational content about food safety, such as food facts and podcasts, we’ve rounded up three can’t-miss sessions from IFT’s FIRST that examine the latest advancements in food safety. Each session is available on-demand through the end of the year.
The three sessions featured above are just a fraction of the food safety insights shared at FIRST. Fortunately, access to the FIRST scientific content, which includes panel discussions and technical research posters on a range of topics, is available through December 31, 2021, so it’s not too late to immerse yourself in this rich information, learn something new, and connect with experts in the various topic areas. If you already registered for FIRST, you can log in with your existing credentials. Otherwise, explore the program overview and register now for on-demand access.
