Welcome to the Florida Association for Food Protection (FAFP)!
FAFP is a community of food safety advocates from industry, regulatory, and academia who collaborate to build awareness and a safer food system. We are a purpose-driven organization dedicated to food safety education, development, inclusivity, and professional networking. If you are new to FAFP, I encourage you to get involved and become a member. If you are a standing member, thank you for your continued support!
We pride ourselves on hosting engaging events with diverse presentations, exhibits, and networking opportunities. These events include in person luncheons, webinars, and our three-day Annual Educational Conference which will be in Orlando this year. I look forward to seeing you all there!
I am honored to serve as the FAFP President this year. In addition to meeting our membership in person throughout the year, I am also looking forward to creating more opportunities for student engagement and partnering with other area organizations. Thank you for your commitment to building food safety awareness and continued partnership in 2023!
