What is the IFS Conference?

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

It is at the same time a moment of respite that we allow ourselves once a year, a day when we forget about the daily routine and current challenges. We exchange opinions, learn cutting-edge information from all areas of the supply chain, as well as from related industries, new practices, innovative solutions on automation and digitization of processes, records, processing technologies, packaging, logistics, testing, product quality control and safety assurance supply and find new business partners.

Thursday, 25 May 2023​

08:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Hotel Marshal Garden

What we talk about at the conference

IFS Food 8 and IFS HPC 3 - officially released!

The IFS Food 8 standard aims to deliver reliable products. Its vision is cooperation within the supply chain to improve product integrity.

IFS HPC 3 is the standard for evaluating the safety and quality management system and production processes of household and personal care products.

Both standards come to increase consumer confidence in purchased products – on the one hand for food, on the other for household and personal care products. Consumers need it, retailers want to make sure they are giving consumers what they want. If you are a manufacturer and you want to export your products and to be present in the big retail networks, you need these standards.

With the transition to new standards, new requirements appear! During the conference, we discuss what the transition to the new version entails, for maintaining and developing commercial relations both with large retail chains and for the expansion of export partners!

ESG – environmental, social and governance – or more simply, sustainable development – focused on transparency, reducing pollution, creating a healthy development framework for the planet and all its inhabitants.

Who is ESG for? Any company has the duty to align itself with the principles of sustainable development. And IFS came up with a suitable solution, by creating this self-assessment tool to determine the degree to which a company is already prepared or adopts ESG principles.

It is essential to emphasize that ESG is not only the responsibility of large companies. That’s why the IFS ESG Check tool allows all companies, including small and medium-sized ones, to start the process of aligning with sustainable principles and operating mode.

During the conference we will discuss in detail how the IFS ESG Check works, how it is implemented, who are the parties involved – following a parallel with the European perspective that captures the local, regional, national and European approach to ESG adoption.

Efficiency, Efficiency, Efficiency

In an increasingly competitive local and regional market, with consumers more and more attentive and demanding in terms of what they buy and consume, the only directions in the medium and long term are compliance with quality standards and increased efficiency.

In this context, during the conference we will discuss how this increase in effectiveness and efficiency can be achieved in 3 steps:

  • Identifying processes and establishing performance indicators for processes and products
  • Constant monitoring and measurement of processes and products
  • Analyzing and acting on monitoring to continuously improve the effectiveness and efficiency of processes and products

We will discuss optimization and control in production costs but also with labor. We will review a series of software solutions that can contribute decisively to the optimization of processes in the FMCG/Retail field.
