What We Do

“The idea is to go from numbers to information to understanding.”

Do you investigate foodborne outbreaks?

We can help!

An Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence

As part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) designated Minnesota as an Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence (FSCoE) in 2012. We are committed to improving training, research, continuing education, and outreach related to food safety and the prevention of foodborne illness.

The center is a partnership between the Minnesota Department of Health and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health.
