This year, Singapore will be hosting the 13th ASEAN Food Conference at the MAX Atria, Singapore Expo from 9 to 11 September 2013. The Conference is organised by the Singapore Institute of Food Science & Technology (SIFST), in conjunction with the ASEAN-Committee on Science & Technology (ASEAN–COST) and the Federation of the Institute of Food Science and Technology in ASEAN (FIFSTA). The theme of this conference is “Meeting Future Food Demands: Security & Sustainability”. The conference aims to reflect the challenges of future food demands due to natural disasters such as earthquakes and typhoons; global warming and population growth.

Ms. Neo Geok Tin, Lead Auditor from SGS Singapore will share with attendees, the challenges faced by the food industry in managing the performance of the food supply chain, an understanding of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), an overview of other globally recognized food safety management systems (FSMS) and how these standards can help ensure a sustainable food production and improve supply chain traceability. Ms. Neo will also highlight how SGS can assist in mitigating risks and improving efficiency at every stage of the food value chain from primary production to retail and hospitality so that an organization can meet their commitment to consumers, the environment and to social wellbeing; while at the same time helping them meet their own expectations of furthering excellence.
