The X SGS Food Forum 2018 will traditionally focus on food safety and quality

A food safety and quality management system could be compared to a complex apparatus that requires fine-tuning. The system will fail if one doesn’t take into account mistakes of the past and trends of the future, if one doesn’t take into account requirements set by governments, consumers, supply chain partners and business owners.

Each lever on the management dashboard should be adjusted in such a way that the whole system may operate efficiently and effectively. For that purpose, one has to carefully study the factors impacting those levers, to identify bottle-necks and preview ways to avoid them.

The key components of a food safety and quality management system and the tools to adjust those components will be in the focus of the Х SGS Food Safety Forum “Fine-Tuning” to take place on 18-19 July 2018 in Moscow, Russia.


The Forum 2018 will be structured around the following sessions:

  • State supervision over food safety
  • Following the trends: focus on healthy food
  • Building an efficient supply chain
  • ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION: Exercising control function: how to find the right balance between insufficient and redundant control? Do control methods in food safety management equal control methods in company management? Internal audits as a controlling tool
  • International news in the field of food safety and quality management: FSSC 22000 v 4.1, ISO 22000:2018
  • Food fraud and food defense: methodology and case studies
  • ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION: Extending the forecasting time-frame: outlook into the future. Evolution of food products, technologies and processes
  • Continuous improvement and internal efficiency
  • MASTER-CLASS: Implementing lean production at a food plant


  • General and executive directors, business owners
  • Quality directors, food safety managers, management systems managers
  • Production managers, production engineers

Traditionally, the Forum will gather representatives of:

  • Governmental authorities and NGOs
  • Food processing industry, packaging and agriculture
  • Trade, HoReCa and logistics
