About

Dear Sir or Madam,
fundamental changes are made in the organization of regional, national and international chains and food retailers. Global dependencies and links in one of the largest economic sectors are very important for the basic human needs and attitudes in various cultural, social, economic, legal and physical environments, which are a challenge to research and scientific cooperation.

To meet the wide range of challenges facing us, an unilateral approach focused on classical research is no longer sufficient. A multidisciplinary approach is needed, combining economic, social and legal issues as well as studies in technical, environmental and natural sciences.

The Congress is organized by IFS Office Central & Eastern Europe in cooperation with SGGW, Quality Promotion Office and the world logistical organization CSCMP Poland. The Congress is a platform for sharing knowledge and experience in food safety, new technologies, market access, global logistics, interdependence and cooperation between multinational and small producers, private and public standards and sustainable development.

Representatives of raw materials producers for the processing industry, processors, banks, salesmen (trade companies, exporters,  retail sector, distributors), export directors, directors responsible for business financial security, logistic companies, market surveillance agents, certification bodies, consultants, insurance companies, representatives of science.

IFS (International Featured Standards) is a group of standards developed by professionals from different countries. The most important standard is IFS Food 6 dedicated to food processing companies. It was recognized by GFSI. IFS certifications are required by many of Europe’s leading retail chains and importers of modern wholesale and retail.
