The Collaborative Food Safety Forum (CFSF or Forum) is a platform for multi-sector engagement on issues critical to keeping our nation’s food supply safe.
Focused on implementation of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the Forum is comprised of industry, consumer, academic, and federal and state government stakeholders. With funding from The Pew Charitable Trusts (Pew) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the Forum holds workshops that elicit dialogue and recommendations in a creative, constructive, and collaborative manner.
FSMA was passed by Congress in December 2010, and President Obama signed the bill into law in early January 2011. Soon thereafter, Pew, RWJF, and RESOLVE launched the Forum. After recently completing a first phase of the Forum, we are now entering a second phase that builds on that foundation while introducing new topics that respond to the evolution of FSMA implementation.
