128th AFDO Annual Educational Conference


Coming soon!


The AFDO conference partners with regional AFDO affiliates to present this learning experience in a different geographic area annually. For five days each June when meeting in person, the AFDO AEC is the center of the food safety world for professionals from government, states, academia, consumer groups, and manufacturing.

Subject matter experts convene for the educational conference ready and willing to share their knowledge. These are dozens of national and international experts on more than 40 topics in food manufacturing, food retail, produce, cannabis, and body art.

AFDO also hosts pre-conference in-depth workshops and training opportunities on a broad number of topics adjacent to the annual conference. A special first-time attendees session and communications help newcomers make the most of their conference experience. View more information here.
