CPS Research Symposium Highlights Latest Food-Research Findings

Western Growers’ members are invited to learn about the latest produce food safety research findings during the 7th Annual Center for Produce Safety Symposium on June 28-29 in Seattle.

Produce industry leaders, government officials and food safety research scientists will gather to learn about topics such as irrigation water advancements; utilizing surrogates, indicators and detection methods; implementing science-based preventive controls that minimize contamination risks; and more.

Additionally, principal investigators will describe their research programs and share preliminary data and initial conclusions. The symposium will close with a “hot topics” session that examines research related to current industry priorities on animal intrusion and on-farm pathogen detection.
