What is the IFS Conference?

What is the IFS Conference?

The IFS conference is already a traditional event of the food industry and the industry of household and personal care products, of the FMCG and retail industry that facilitates the meeting of specialists in the field, meeting partners, collaborators, customers, suppliers and certification bodies.

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.

It will be a pleasure for me to attend at the 10th IFS Conference in Romania 🇷🇴
Thanks a lot to Ionut NACHE for organising the conference and in general for representing IFS - International Featured Standards in this region not only in Romania

What we talk about at the conference

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.

IFS Logistics applies to all areas of logistics, such as delivery by truck, train or ship, and to all types of food and non-food products, whether they need to be transported at freezing temperatures, refrigerated or non-refrigerated.

Every company has a duty to align itself with the principles of sustainable development. And IFS has come up with the right solution, by creating this independent self-assessment and evaluation tool to determine the degree to which a company is already prepared or adopting ESG principles.

ESG, which stands for environmental, social, and governance, or more simply, sustainable development, is centered around transparency, pollution reduction, and establishing a wholesome development framework for the planet and its inhabitants.

Who benefits from ESG? Every company bears the responsibility to align itself with the principles of sustainable development. Recognizing this need, IFS has introduced a practical solution through the development of a self-assessment tool. This tool serves to gauge the extent to which a company is currently prepared or adopts ESG principles.

It is crucial to underscore that ESG is not exclusively the responsibility of large corporations. Hence, the IFS ESG Check tool is designed to empower all companies, including small and medium-sized enterprises, to initiate the process of aligning with sustainable principles and operational practices.
