Food-borne Illness Outbreak – a headline that pops up in the news every year. With the proper food safety guidelines and training, these incidents could be reduced or prevented altogether.


Food Science and Technology Extension strives to help the food industry, and we do that through the various workshops we provide throughout the year. These workshops are geared towards training individuals so they might be able to create proper food safety and HACCP plans that are specific to their operation. Our department also offers multiple services, and our personnel work closely with those in the food industry.


Our goal is to provide the public and the food industry with unbiased, research-based food safety education. To see more of what we have to offer, explore the “Workshops & Trainings” and “Our Services” pages.
