Welcome

The Institute for Food Safety at Cornell University (IFS@CU) takes a comprehensive approach to providing training and conducting applied research to support the food industry in reducing foodborne illness risks from farm to fork. The IFS@CU harnesses Cornell’s existing strengths across food production systems in fruits, vegetables, dairy foods, and entrepreneurial support to help growers and processors comply with the demands of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA's) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). By helping the food industry meet federal regulatory requirements and produce safe products, the IFS@CU will support economic growth across all food sectors in NY including produce, juice, and dairy, allowing for increased production and novel food product development.
