Here we have created one place that pulls it all together for the food safety community and fills a void in our food safety system. It is about using the Web to put as much available food safety information in one place as is possible. We provide timely reporting on food safety issues with contributed articles from food safety leaders and feeds from government, food industry, and other food safety authorities.
As both print and broadcast media face consolidation, we have been disappointed to see good reporters on the food, health, and safety beats lose their jobs to early retirement or reductions in force. Although excellent food safety reporting continues across the country, more reporting and commentary is needed. We are confident that food safety community leaders will contribute to the site and that a strong and growing audience of Internet users interested in food safety will utilize all of the information we have presented here.
