BC Food Safety Stakeholders Group Regional Workshop

Dear Members of the BC Food Safety Stakeholders Group, the BC Food Industry and Support Services:

Your BC Food Safety Stakeholders Group has decided to hold a third Regional Workshop. Previous workshops were held on November 29th in Nanaimo, BC and January 10th in Kelowna, BC.

The third workshop will be held in partnership with the BC Food Protection Association and will be held on March 7th, 2013 at the Newlands Golf & Country Club, 21025 - 48th Avenue, Langley, BC. Some adjustment was made to the agenda for the third workshop due to speaker availability, but we hope all agree that the program includes a great line up of speakers and relevant food safety topics.

Should costs prevent you from attending the 9th Annual North American Summit on Food Safety in Toronto on the same date, then here is your affordable option close to home! An Event Brochure and Program are now available for download. Please take the time to review this information and pass on to friends and colleagues interested in food safety. Early Bird registration for this event will be offered at the more than reasonable fee of $59.
