An article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune profiles the work of Consortium member the National Center for Food Protection and Defense, led by Prof. Amy Kircher, DrPH. The Center is affiliated with the Department of Homeland Security, and is working with public health officials and industry to improve our ability to track our food supply from farm to fork. This process, called "food traceability," is an important tool to ensure products are safe to eat, contain outbreaks from tainted food, and strengthen the global food economy.
