Board of Directors

The success of the Center for Produce Safety can be directly attributed to those who have volunteered time and resources to support a collaborative research effort.  CPS is comprised of a small staff of just two paid employees, making the CPS Board of Advisors, CPS Technical Committee, and ad-hoc proposal reviewers, very critical to the success of CPS and solidifying it as a destination for collaboration and cooperation on produce food safety.

"I am truly honored to be an integral part of the Center for Produce Safety, an organization whose sole mission is to improve food safety in the global produce industry. Because of CPS’s leadership and dedication supporting the health and well-being of consumers, research and implementation of best practices in the area of food safety will continue."
