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 to 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.
