WG Releases Report on Food Safety Research Findings

Western Growers has released a new report summarizing important food safety research findings to help produce industry members understand relevant food safety research and how key findings apply to day-to-day operations.  

The report, entitled “A Practical Guide to Scientific Research,” summarizes and interprets research presented at the fourth annual Center for Produce Safety (CPS) Research Symposium held June 26, 2013, at Wegman’s Conference Center in Rochester, New York. The guide is now posted online and discusses the 16 presentations, final reports for each project, prior research funded through CPS relevant to the current findings and considerations from the panel discussions.

CPS will hold its 5th Annual Produce Research Symposium this year on June 23-24 in Atlanta, Georgia.
