Under the mandate of the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act five centers of food safety excellence were established. Each Center of Excellence represents a partnership between a state health department and a University. Our Florida Center of Excellence builds on a strong statewide program in foodborne illness at the Florida Department of Health (FDOH), working in collaboration with the University of Florida’s Emerging Pathogens Institute, College of Public Health and Health Professions, and Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences and College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The Center also includes links with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), and state health departments in Alabama, Georgia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The areas served by these health departments have a population of 33 million, representing approximately 9% of the U.S. population.
