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

The Coalition of FPTF programs promote communication, collaboration and integration between and amongst state FPTFs and their members, including local, state and federal public health and agriculture food regulatory agencies, law enforcement, academia, industry, consumers, state legislators and other food protection stakeholders to:

  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.

FDA Plans Public Meeting to Address Food Safety Risks

September 9, 2021 - As Consumers Order More Meals and Groceries Online, FDA Plans Public Meeting to Address Food Safety Risks. On Oct. 19-21, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will meet with members of the food industry, regulatory counterparts at all levels of government, consumers, and others to enhance our understanding of how human and animal foods are sold through e-commerce business models and to identify ways to control potential food safety risks. There is also an opportunity to comment through the Federal Register. The FDA will use the information received to decide on what actions may be needed to further protect consumers.
