Food Safety Clinic

Pro bono technical assistance

FDA food safety regulations and customer requirements can be a daunting barrier to food entrepreneurs and small food processors.  Under-resourced small companies working with high risk ready-to-eat products must embrace the same level of knowledge and food safety expertise as large operations to protect the health of their customers. One recall or outbreak has negative impact on the entire food industry.  That is why we are offering periodic, no-cost technical assistance to these businesses. Assistance is offered on a limited basis by prior application and arrangement.

Volunteer International work

Our belief in giving back extends to the international food processing community. Check our past volunteer food safety projects in Republic of Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, and Belarus.
