Food Safety Partnership Announces New Members, Expands Board
The Partnership for Food Safety Education yesterday announced an expanded board of directors and the addition of the Grocery Manufacturers Association and the American Frozen Food Institute as members.
Robert Brackett, GMA senior VP and chief science and regulatory affairs officer, and Leslie Sarasin, AFFI CAE, president and CEO, were appointed to the organization’s board of directors.
"The Partnership Board will benefit tremendously from the engagement of these two food-industry leaders and their associations," says Bryan Silbermann, board chairman. "To have an impact on foodborne illness we must engage all food and consumer product associations and their member companies in consumer education. I know Bob and Leslie well; they see the benefits of being involved and we see the value of their experience and insights."
The Partnership for Food Safety Education is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving public health through research-based, actionable consumer food safety education, and for the past ten years has led the Fight BAC food safety and safe food handling campaign.
