Chief Organizer Message

I wish to express my sincere appreciation to all those who played an integral role in making world food safety day a truly monumental event in the history of the kingdom. The exceptional gathering, marked by profound learning, extensive professional networking, and sheer enjoyment, stands as a testament to the dedication and collaboration of every stakeholder involved.

This year, we gather under the banner of the theme, ‘food standards save lives,’ accentuating the pivotal role that food standards play in preserving not only safety but also quality. 

My heartfelt congratulations extend to each and every one of you for not only elevating this event to historic proportions within Saudi Arabia but also for leaving an indelible mark on the global stage. Food safety is a collective obligation that we fully recognize, which is why we have strived to engage stakeholders across the entire food chain in constructive dialogues.

With unwavering commitment and optimism, we will continue our efforts to fortify food safety systems, uphold rigorous standards, and promote best practices, both within the industry and across society.

I extend a cordial invitation for you to join us once more in 2024, as we eagerly anticipate your presence in Jeddah, Riyadh, and Dammam in June 2024.

May your days be filled with greatness and your meals be ever safe.
