Dear Participants,
This year marks both the 10th anniversary of our Association and the intensive
preparations for the 5th Food Safety Congress. One year never amounts to a
sufficient timeframe for the preparation of such an extensive event as the Food
Safety Congress; therefore, we have decided to hold the Congress biennially
from this year on.
We are enjoying the excitement and pride of getting together with you, our
valuable participants, with increased rates of participation and interest within
the scope of the only congress of Turkey and the surrounding geography
that addresses “food safety” as its main theme. As the Turkish Food Safety
Association, we have always believed that the most important outlet to
ensuring food safety is to allow different professions and stakeholders to come
together, get to know each other more closely and generate a common mind.
The organisational structure of our Congress also serves as evidence for this belief; we have improved our
power base further with the cooperative presence of 10 stakeholders and 20 supporting institutions in total,
including this year’s new additions and the notable value added by the cooperation extended by the Ministry
of Food, Agriculture and Livestock and the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP), the largest
international trade organisation in this field.
The 5th Food Safety Congress will provide us with opportunities to listen to numerous interesting speakers
from Turkey and abroad and to learn about new developments and success stories from different parties.
The Congress will also serve as a great platform to meet old friends and make new ones.
Looking forward to meeting you at Harbiye Military Museum and Cultural Centre on 7-8 May 2015...
Kind regards,
Samim Saner
