Cultivating Food Safety Knowledge
The Institute for Food Safety (IFS@CU) supports the production of safe and novel foods that increase the economic viability and sustainability of the food industry in NYS and beyond. With expertise in fresh produce, dairy, juice, and food processing, the IFS@CU helps the food industry meet federal regulatory requirements in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and address food safety challenges that stretch from farms to consumers’ tables. Through research and extension collaborations, as well as by embracing new technologies, the program actively works with farmers, processors, retailers, and consumers to produce and keep food safe.
