The Center for Produce Safety is honored to showcase three research projects during the Fresh Summit Research to Real-World: The Best of Food Safety Innovations workshop, October 16. The workshop format will be similar to the CPS Symposium held in June 2010.
Three scientists will present the current status of their projects, and an expert panel will discuss the possible application of the science for the produce industry. The three projects were selected to show the breadth of research funded by CPS. The projects look at new processing technology, tomato cultivar selection and evaluating industry data to build risk management tools.
Research to Real-World: The Best of Food Safety Innovations session, October 16, 9:35am – 10:50am.
