  • Conversations with Experts on Food Topics - Question & Answer series with key leaders and experts at FDA on a variety of popular topics.
  • Producing a Food Product that is Regulated by FDA - If you are producing a food product, there is a good chance it is regulated by FDA.
  • Food Business Requirements - If you are thinking about opening a food business, there are many regulatory requirements that you will need to meet. Some of these requirements apply to all food businesses, and some are specific to the particular food product, such as low-acid canned food, seafood, or juice.
  • Importation of Food and Cosmetics - FDA is responsible for enforcing the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and other laws which are designed to protect consumers' health, safety, and pocketbook. These laws apply equally to domestic and imported products. 
  • Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) - FSMA is transforming the nation’s food safety system by shifting the focus from responding to foodborne illness to preventing it. Congress enacted FSMA in response to dramatic changes in the global food system and in our understanding of foodborne illness and its consequences, including the realization that preventable foodborne illness is both a significant public health problem and a threat to the economic well-being of the food system.
