Global Food Systems Food Safety Workshop: Produce
How important are vegetables in your diet? Has the pandemic impacted the availability of fresh produce? Is the safety of the food you eat important? Explore how basic research fits in the world of applied sciences in the production of food at the second Global Food Systems Food Safety Workshop.
Global Food Systems will welcome keynote speaker Max Teplitski, chief technical officer for the Produce Marketing Association, to discuss challenges and lessons learned during the COVID-19 era.
Additional presentations will provide an overview of just some of the produce research happening at K-State, including:
- Fundamental research on E-coli.
- Applications in storage.
- Water safety
- Produce handling.
We invite you to join this workshop to learn more about your colleagues’ research and to perhaps discover a possible collaboration opportunity.
