ROSEMONT, IL — Food Safety News is an attendee, exhibitor, and panel sponsor at the Food Safety Summit now underway at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL

The panel we sponsored Tuesday was titled “Effectively Communicating with the Regulatory Community.” It featured two of the best spokesman I’ve heard from USDA and FDA — Phil Bornstein and Mark Moorman.

Bernstein is the assistant administrator for USDA’s field operations at the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). Moorman is the director of food safety for FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Nutrition (CFSAN) unit. They were ably joined by Steve Mandernach from the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) in addition to Jorge Hernandez from Wendy’s and Will Daniel of ArgoThrive Inc.
