    The Future of Our Food Safety with a Director from the FDA

    November 5, 2020@12:00 pm-1:30 pm


    A Distinguished Speaker Event with Mark Moorman
    Free, Live and Online on Thursday, November 5th at 12:00 pm

    In our increasingly global market, where does our food come from and is it always safe? The pandemic crisis has accelerated the need for increased traceability of our food and better methods to predict disruptions in our food supply. In the future, rapid response to foodborne illnesses and outbreaks will become increasingly vital to our feelings of security concerning food.  The FDA predicts that we will see more changes in the food system in the next 10 years than we have in decades. To address these challenges they have released a blueprint that ushers in “A New Era of Smarter Food Safety,” which outlines the role each of us will share in helping ensure our food is safe moving forward. 

    Join us as we welcome Mark Moorman, the Director of the Office of Food Safety at the Food and Drug Administration where he leads a team of professionals focused on improving the safety of our food supply.  Prior to joining the FDA, Mark was the Senior Director of Global Scientific & Regulatory Affairs for the Kellogg Company in Battle Creek, MI with responsibilities for emerging food safety and nutrition technical and regulatory issues.  Prior to joining the Kellogg Company in 1998, Mark spent 10 years with Silliker Laboratories as the Technical Director of Microbiology. Mark has his undergraduate and Ph.D. degrees from Michigan State University in Microbiology and Food Science.
