The Importance of Food Safety

While advancements have been made previously in food safety, the incidence of foodborne illness in the US has yet to significantly decrease. In order to ensure the safety and health of their customers, food producers and retailers have a responsibility to continue to improve upon their food safety systems.


Unveiled July 13, 2020, the New Era of Smarter Food Safety is the FDA’s blueprint for the future. Sounding the alarm for greater transparency about our nation’s food supply, it represents a new approach to food safety that leverages technology and other tools to create a safer, digitized and traceable food system.
