President Welcome

President’s Welcome

Dear FAFP Membership,

Thank you for taking time to visit our site. Whether you’re from industry, regulatory, academia, or have an interest in promoting food safety, FAFP offers an excellent opportunity for networking, collaboration, and learning through:

  • Training Opportunities
  • Educational Luncheons
  • Academic Scholarships
  • Annual Educational Conference

I joined FAFP ten years ago after relocating to Florida and quickly realized the high level of commitment and passion that our members have with carrying out our mission “to provide Food Safety Professionals worldwide with a forum to exchange information on protecting the food supply.”

If you are new to the organization, please check out one of our Educational Luncheons or join us for our Annual Educational Conference May 22, 2018 – May 24, 2018 at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront in St. Petersburg, FL.

Thank you to all members who make our organization possible and I am honored to serve as your 2018 Florida Association for Food Protection President.


Tom O’Brien

FAFP 2018 President
