EDQC - 2020 (Digital Edition)

NOVEMBER 17, 2020 — NOVEMBER 19, 2020

Man, woman, cow, milk

Pioneering diagnostics since 1963 with an unrelenting spirit to improve upon public health and safety, bioMérieux is happy to announce our 2020 European Dairy Quality Conference (3rd edition).

The safety of our community is a top priority. In the light of the European health safety recommendations, we have therefore made the decision to transform our annual in-person conference into a virtual event. Although we realise you have attended many webinars during the last few months, this event promises to be a highlight, and for sure not cheesy. 

We look forward to bringing together all stakeholders in the food industry with a specific focus on Dairy. All organizations involved in food safety and food quality, milk quality and control, dairy producers and retailers, production, supply - and laboratory managers as well as institutes watching over public and animal health are kindly invited to participate.

Join thought leaders, experts and professionals from across Europe to share best practices and discuss the future of the dairy industry in a highly competitive market. You will have the opportunity to discover the latest insights and advances developed to protect your brands and the health of the people that consume dairy products as well as the optimization of processes within your company.
