Western Growers Donates $1 Million to Bolster Food Safety Research

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.
