Safety Summit

The Beef Industry Food Safety Council (BIFSCo) collaborates with the Beef Checkoff Program and other sponsors to host an annual Beef Industry Safety Summit.

This signature event began in 2003 as an opportunity to bring industry safety leaders and scientists together to hear the latest research results, learn about advancements in food safety monitoring and testing methodology, and openly converse with competitors seeking solutions that will benefit the entire industry. Today, this event continues to be a hallmark event for the industry to gather in a non-competitive spirit and address beef safety challenges.

During the Summit attendees will:

  • Discuss current safety issues with representatives from all sectors of the beef industry during technical sessions
  • Gain a better understanding of beef-chain challenges, pathogens, and interventions during research results presentations
  • Network with colleagues, representatives from all industry sectors, government agency staff, and the research community
  • Determine future courses of action to help each sector enhance the safety of U.S. beef products
