In recent years, use of the term ‘food safety culture’ has grown significantly by professionals in the industry, academia and regulatory.

Despite its increased usage and growing realization of the role organizational culture plays in influencing human behavior, there remain gaps in a more science-based approach to this topic based on insights from the behavioral science field, concepts of organizational culture, and the use of proven and effective measurement tools.

This symposium is intended to advance the food safety culture discussion from mere awareness exercises to proven strategies used by advanced practitioners on topics related to culture measurements, proven principles of human behavior and real-world industry best practices.
