The IFS Romania conference is already a traditional event, of the food industry and of the household and personal care products industry, which facilitates the meeting of specialists in the field, the reunion with partners, collaborators, customers, suppliers and certifiers.

It is also a time of respite that we allow ourselves once a year, a day when we forget about our daily routine and current challenges. We exchange views, find up-to-date information from all areas of the supply chain, and related industries, new practices, innovative solutions for automation and digitization of processes, records, processing technologies, packaging, logistics, testing, product quality control and security food and we find new business partners.

You have the opportunity to personalize your participation, so we expect from you proposals for approaches, ideas, topics, themes that represent you, highlight the business, which could give more value to the quality of Partner. We strive to be a unique experience!

This year, the 8th edition of IFS Conference will be physically organized, which will allow partners networking options with participants, an exhibition area where you can put information about the company (company profile), videos of max 2- 3 minutes, product / service presentation materials. It will also be possible to mention and detail the company’s projects.

The round table

“Supply chain sustainability: farms, processors, retail”

“Stephan Tromp, Managing Director of IFS, adds: “Collaboration is essential for transparent supply chains. It is critical in meeting the growing demands of consumers and politics in the area of ESG. Together with FTrace, GLOBALG.A.P. and GS1 Germany, we want to offer viable one-stop solutions for optimal supply chain management.

The cooperation enables transparency data to be used in near real time as part of a standardized and decentralized approach. In this way, F-Trace, GLOBALG.A.P., GS1 Germany and IFS meet all supply chain participants’ and market requirements – regardless of industry, company size and IT maturity.”
