Event Details


What is FARE's Food Industry Day?

Food Industry Day is an opportunity for members of the food manufacturing industry, trade associations, restaurants, government agencies, and other groups to come together to learn the latest information about food allergies.


“The best part of the conference is that it creates an open dialogue between patient organizations and food industry. It helps members of industry better understand the needs and motivation of patient groups. Misconceptions are removed on both sides.” 

— Steve Taylor, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Food Science and Technology, director of the Food Allergy Research and Resource Program of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and a member of FARE’s Medical Advisory Board.


Reasons to Attend: 

  • Food industry representatives, Food & Drug Administration officials and food allergy advocates will have the opportunity to learn from each other, sharing both the industry and consumer perspective.
  • Attendees will learn about FARE’s priorities in both policy and research
  • Attendees will get the latest epidemiological information on food allergies to better tailor products and practices to customers.
