Food Safety from Farm to Fork

Research

The Pew Charitable Trusts examined food safety control measures currently used on farms and feedlots or that might be employed in the future. Identifying potential pre-harvest measures, however, is just a first step in effectively controlling food safety hazards and allowing further improvements to public health. While existing pre-harvest interventions can reduce pathogens to some extent, a comprehensive approach is necessary to significantly reduce contamination. This must include safety measures before, during, and after harvest—a true farm-to-fork approach. Download it here.
