Public and Contributing Partners are the organizations that form the leadership base of the Partnership for Food Safety Education. In other words, they are the “partners” in the “Partnership” and they help contribute to the Partnership’s mission to improve public health and reduce foodborne illness.
Companies, trade associations, and public interest and scientific organizations with involvement in securing, maintaining and promoting a safe food supply are invited to become Partners. Several of the current Partners have been contributors for more than ten years (these organizations are noted with an asterisk).
