USDA Announces Close to $19 million Food Safety Research Grants

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3, 2016:

President's 2017 Budget Request Will Propose to Fully Fund USDA's Agriculture and Food Research Initiative, Doubling Amount That Was Available in 2016

WASHINGTON, March 31, 2015

USDA Awards 36 Food Safety Grants, Including $6.7 Million for Antimicrobial Resistance, to Protect Consumers

This announcement provides a refreshing direction of focus. At a time when food business operators are made to believe that product safety and quality management challenges can be resolved through the creation of large volumes of administrative paperwork, the idea to fund meaningful research is well worth celebrating. Targeted research is right in line with the proposals for collaborative solution-finding under the SSQA Concept.

The following projects were selected for awards:
  • Enhancing Food Safety through Improved Processing Technologies
  • Effective Mitigation Strategies for Antimicrobial Resistance
  • Identifying and Targeting Food Safety Needs
  • Improving Food Safety
  • Improving Food Quality
