Register for the NACS Food Safety Forum

Food safety is not an option—register to attend the only forum of its kind designed to protect your customers and brand.

May 13, 2024

The NACS Food Safety Forum, taking place on October 7 in conjunction with the NACS Show in Las Vegas, aims to empower convenience leaders and their teams to do the right thing, protect public health and brands and deliver the high quality and safe experience customers deserve.

Convenience stores are one of the fastest growing food segments, with foodservice (prepared food, commissary, hot, cold and frozen dispensed beverages) representing nearly 27% of inside sales in 2023, according to NACS State of the Industry data.

With more labor intensive and sophisticated foodservice programs being developed and executed within our industry, food safety is not an option—it’s an imperative.

“Food safety and protecting public health is not a competitive advantage,” Dr. Jay Ellingson, chief scientific officer at La Crosse, Wisconsin-based Kwik Trip said at last year’s Food Safety Forum. Making sure food safety behaviors are prioritized throughout an organization is how we elevate our entire industry—and that’s the reason why NACS created the Food Safety Forum in 2022.

Content at this year’s Forum will focus on four main principles:

  • Consumer safety.
  • Clean and quality experiences.
  • Protecting our brands.
  • Empowering our teams to do the right thing.

Additionally, participants will be empowered to recognize the whys behind food safety protocols and how certain behaviors can enhance and protect their teams, customers and brands.
