NSF International has had a longstanding partnership with OFPA for many years. We value our partnership and are continually impressed with OFPA’s passion and focus on bringing Ontario’s food and beverage industry professionals together for information exchange, networking and learning opportunities.
As new members of the OFPA, we’ve found it to be a great place to connect with like-minded individuals. The recent symposium they hosted consisted of highly experienced experts in the field of Food Safety whose insights will only help us improve our practices going forward
OFPA membership is valuable to my business in several ways: Education; Information; Relationship building and Networking (face to face and via technology). If food safety is important to your business you should be a member of OFPA!
“OFPA has always been a unique cross-section of industry, government and service organizations promoting partnership, collaboration and professionalism across the Ontario food industry. The International Association of Food Protection (IAFP) has recognized OFPA, various OFPA member companies and individuals as having contributed to the global food safety knowledge base. As a Past President, I have always felt the association’s strength lies in the peer connections, friendships and openness which has been at the heart of the organization for many years.”
In the last few years, we have been taking our students to the OFPA “Fall Food Safety Symposium.” This event has helped our students to get the needed exposure to the current trends within the food industry while providing the opportunity for the students to network with people working in the food industry.
