The Institute of Food Technologists is hosting an exclusive press event featuring the launch of the new Global Food Traceability Center, which was approved by IFT's Board of Directors at the 2013 Annual Meeting and Food Expo. IFT's Global Food Traceability Center will bring together key stakeholders in the food system to create the first single, not-for-profit, unbiased scientific entity focused on product tracing. The Center will improve response time to foodborne outbreaks, reduce the scope of recalls, and conduct root-cause analysis to encourage efficient traceability practices, ultimately benefiting both companies and consumers.
