National Integrated Food
The National Integrated Food Safety Initiative (NIFSI) is primarily a food safety program, but a portion of this program addresses processing technologies for reduction and elimination of foodborne pathogens and allergens. Under Integrated Authority (Section 406), NIFA administers competitive grants in food safety activities that integrate research, education, and extension in priority areas that are based on stakeholder input. The food science and technology component addresses the impact of alternative technologies on food safety. More information can be found on the National Integrated Food Safety Initiative Program page.
