Welcome to the Food Safety Consortium

  • The Food Safety Consortium consists of researchers from the University of Arkansas, Iowa State University and Kansas State University.

  • The Consortium was established by Congress in 1988 through a special Cooperative State Research Service grant.

  • The Consortium's charge is to conduct extensive investigation into all areas of poultry, beef and pork meat production, from the farm to the consumer's table.

  • Each of the university members of the Consortium is primarily performing research associated with the specific animal species for which that university is uniquely qualified: University of Arkansas, poultry; Iowa State University, pork; and Kansas State University, beef.

  • Research projects are also coordinated with scientists at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and Arkansas Children's Hospital.
