Western Growers (WG) has donated $1 million to the Center for Produce Safety (CPS) to advance food safety research and develop ready-to-use solutions to improve the safety of fresh produce globally. WG’s contribution puts CPS over the $10 million mark for their Campaign for Produce Safety, which aims to raise $20 million by 2020 to fund critically needed, actionable food safety research.

The support of every stakeholder in the supply chain is needed to raise the additional $10 million needed to double the output of produce safety research and advance educational initiatives to further translate research findings into action.

For more information, see the full press release. To learn more about CPS’ key findings that have led to improved safety practices, visit the "best in class" research fact sheet.
