The Center for Food Safety is part of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Science at University of Georgia. Located in Griffin, Georgia, faculty at CFS conduct cutting-edge research in food safety that benefits both the food industry and the consumer.  

CFS has created strong collaborative ties with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the USDA Russell Research Center and other research groups on the Athens campus of University of Georgia. The Center also works closely with the food industry who contributes to its research programs through Center memberships. A list of current food industry members is found on our Industry Members page. 

Below, you will find a list of common food safety topics and CFS experts available for interview by topic, by appointment.
