Food safety professionals face increasing challenges due to shrinking budgets, international
trade, new technologies, emerging pathogens, and changing consumer demands. AFDO has
joined together with NEHA, IAFP along with Arkansas, Clemson, Purdue, Rutgers and Utah State
Universities to form the Retail Food Safety Consortium (RFSC).
