Abstract : The National Center for Food Safety and Technology (NCFST) is a consortium among Illinois Institute of Technology, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the food industry. NCFST's research is implemented through science platforms that reflect the organization's expertise: food processing and packaging, food microbiology, chemical contaminants and allergens, nutrition, and proficiency testing and method validation programs. The NCFST seeks to build on its strong foundation and history of the collaboration with industry, FDA and academia to increase its research portfolio and expand its partnership with its stakeholders. By conducting important research on critical food processing issues to address food safety and nutrition, NCFST can help improve the health and well-being of the public.
