    Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety has released information about an upcoming webinar that they are hosting.

    Webinar: Harnessing Food Safety to Address Global Food Security

    Date: October 28, 2020

    Time: 9:00-10:00am EDT

Strengthening local capacity in food safety has untapped potential to break cycles of disease and malnutrition, support well-nourished communities, and generate economic opportunity through increased access to export markets. The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety leverages research and expertise in food safety, food production, nutrition, and international development to identify the root causes of foodborne illness within supply chains. The first webinar in this series will explore how data-driven food safety policy and practices can transform food systems and promote global food security.
