Building Safe Food Systems Starts with Partnerships

Excerpt extracted from article:

On June 15, 2021, University of Maryland’s Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (UMD-JIFSAN), Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences (IAFNS) and Structured Partnerships hosted a listening session on establishing a new PPP on data sharing to improve food safety capacity building. Building Safe Food Systems Starts with Partnerships provides a summary of this listening session with a focus on steps moving forward.

We have crafted a white paper, engaged various stakeholders and held the June 15 listening session to advance this effort. Now we want you to join us!

This is an optimal time for potential partners and funders to put their energy behind this emerging PPP’s momentum, to collaboratively measure the impact of food safety capacity building efforts and focus. Open data is now the default in conducting government research. Open, commonly shared data, along with collaboration focused on measuring the impact of food safety capacity building, is crucial to bringing safe food to all.

Sharing data is essential for training, environmental monitoring, managing false positives, compliance and best practices. It is an approach the National Academy of Medicine recommended globally in 2020 to food regulatory agencies.
