August 1, 2016

This month's research report is dedicated to the scientists and their projects that were presented at the 2016 CPS Research Symposium. Special thanks to the Produce Marketing Association for preparing this document. 

2016 CPS Research Symposium

Key Learnings

Overview: The seventh annual CPS Research Symposium was held in Seattle, WA on June 28-29, 2016. As in years past, the produce safety research community came together to share the latest results from CPS-funded programs and to discuss how the data can be used to build risk and science-based food safety programs for produce companies all along the supply chain. The interpretation of food safety research results and application to individual companies is most appropriately the undertaking of those that reside within those specific operations. However, we highlight these key learnings from the CPS Symposium to create awareness and stimulate thought.

Among the key findings from the 2016 CPS Research Symposium:

Understanding the genetics and gene expression in production environments will drive the next level of understanding in produce food safety.
