USDA’s Food safety and inspection service is going to host a virtual public meeting to to discuss the state of consumer food safety education, current research, and future studies and engagement to close the gap between food safety messages and consumer action on coming October 6.

In the present scenario, a nation must work in the field of Food safety and awareness about it and this step will be a seed in the direction. It will assist to reframe the policies that will govern the upcoming future.

“USDA has been a leader in consumer education for years, and now we have the evidence to show how and why our food safety messages are critical,” said USDA Under Secretary for Food Safety Dr. Mindy Brashears. “By using research to continually improve food safety education, based on empirical data instead of assumptions, we can change consumer behavior and decrease foodborne illness nationally.”

Meeting will be held under the banner title “Food Safety: Consumer Outreach and Education Today and for the Future,” and will be live virtually on Oct. 6, 12-4 PM. This will be showcasing the presentations and upcoming projects of many stalwarts of food processing industries.

FSIS also invites delegates who will be commenting and earmarking the new startups and initiatives to be implemented for the better future of safety of food.

Furthermore, FSIS is conducting groundbreaking research to understand how consumers truly handle food in the home, with research partners RTI International and North Carolina State University. By observing consumers as they prepare meals and conducting interviews, focus groups and web surveys, FSIS uses data to redesign and reimagine food safety outreach for the future.
