Preservation Summit

Welcome to HCPA's Preservation Summit

New Event Gathers Experts to Balance the Debate on Preservatives

The safety of preservatives continues to be a topic of conversation among key opinion leaders, lawmakers, consumer advocacy groups, NGOs, and the media. HCPA’s Preservation Summit will feature presentations by highly respected scientific experts, third-party voices, and diverse opinions, all of which are intended to further the discussion about the benefits of product preservation. The goal of the Summit is to help inform legislators, retailers, decision makers and NGOs about the benefits of product preservation by developing scientific and consumer-friendly data and educational content that can be used to communicate effectively with a range of target audiences.

The HCPA Preservation Summit will be held during XPAND2019, HCPA’s Annual Meeting, on December 11, 2019 from 8:00 am – 2:30 pm at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
