Afilias applauds new US food safety laws

Traceability solutions provider, Afilias, has welcomed the new food safety laws in the US, saying it is a “major step forward” to protecting and securing the country’s food supplies.

“Afilias applauds the United States Senate on its passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act, S. 510,” said Vice President Brian Cute of Afilias Discovery Services.

“The bill’s requirements for surveillance and traceability will task the Food and Drug Administration with establishing a tracing system for both unprocessed and processed food, increasing our ability to quickly detect potential problems and determine quick, and life-saving, solutions.

“Importantly, interoperable and standards-based traceability services will provide cost-effective solutions for farmers, food producers, processers, and retailers alike,” Mr Cute said.
