Welcome to the Coalition of Food Protection Task Forces homepage. Learn more about State Task Forces and how they are building and strengthening partnerships to protect and defend our food supply.  FDA Office of Partnerships offers a Task Force cooperative agreement to support convening government, industry, academia, and consumer stakeholders in food safety. Meetings funded as part of the Food Protection Task Force grant aim to foster communication, cooperation and collaboration within the States among state, local, federal and tribal food protection, public health, agriculture, and regulatory agencies.

Mission

  1. Promote voluntary compliance with human and animal food laws and regulations;
  2. Prevent human and animal foodborne illness and contamination; and
  3. Improve local, state and multi-jurisdictional human and animal food emergency surveillance, response and post-response systems.
