WASHINGTONThe Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) announced that Wegmans Food Markets and the National Center for Food Protection and Defense (NCFPD) will be the founding sponsors, along with 14 others, of IFT's Global Food Traceability Center.
"At Wegmans, we believe there needs to be a consistent approach to traceability for the food industry," said Colleen Wegman, president of Wegmans Food Markets Inc. We appreciate the Global Food Traceability Centers willingness to spearhead this harmonization effort and serve as a 'go to' place for best practice information, guidance, and training material relating to food traceability. We are proud to be a part of the Advisory Council."
"Due to my long-term personal commitment to IFT, I am pleased with the opportunity for NCFPD to participate in the Global Food Traceability Center. We are highly optimistic about the opportunities for the Center," said Francis F. Busta, Ph.D., NCFPD director emeritus and former president of IFT.
The center was originally launched at the IFT 2013 Food Expo and is designed to help protect and improve the global food supply.
