US Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns has said that the US Department of Agricultre (USDA) has awarded more than US$12m in food safety grants to universities nationwide.

The grants will focus on addressing priority food safety issues by integrating applied research, classroom education and outreach to consumers and industry through the National Integrated Food Safety Initiative (NIFSI).

“The research funded by these grants will help us to find new and innovative ways to ensure we continue to have the safest food supply in the world,” Johanns said. ” The research projects will address food safety issues ranging from on-farm production, post-harvest processing and distribution, to food selection, preparation and consumption.”
