Welcome to the New Era of Smarter Food Safety
FDA is taking a new approach to food safety, leveraging technology and other tools and approaches to create a safer and more digital, traceable food system.
The New Era of Smarter Food Safety blueprint, announced in July 2020, outlines achievable goals to enhance traceability, improve predictive analytics, respond more rapidly to outbreaks, address new business models, reduce contamination of food, and foster the development of stronger food safety cultures.
In FDA Voices, Frank Yiannas, Deputy Commissioner for Food Policy and Response, recognized some of the significant accomplishments achieved by FDA's Foods Program in 2021.
FDA, working with partners in the public and private sectors, has continued to advance goals in each of the four priority areas, called core elements.
