Why Attend

Participate in a conference that makes a difference in the food industry.

Each year, Safe Food California proudly produces one of the most productive educational conferences of the year. Informative sessions, networking social events, and our signature Cocktail & Dinner Gala. You will connect with top executives, processors, and growers from across the United States.

Attendees invest in their goals to expand their food safety education, personally connect with colleagues and grow their business. Innovative speakers and gained insights stemming from discussions with peers representing all sectors of the industry reinvigorate industry connections allowing attendees to move seamlessly between specialized training sessions, focused educational programs, and relaxed social events. Attendees tell us they return to their positions with new connections, new ideas to implement, and renewed enthusiasm for delivering the best products and services.

We invite you to share in the experience by joining us in Monterey this April.
