The Center for Food Security and Public Health (CFSPH) at Iowa State University, in collaboration with a number of partners, is leading the development of Secure Food Supply Plans for eggs, turkeys, milk, pork and beef. These Secure Food Supply Plans are designed to provide business continuity in the face of a foreign animal disease outbreak.
The overall goals of the Secure Food Supply projects include:
- Avoid interruptions in animal/animal product movement to commercial processing from farms with no evidence of infection during a foreign animal disease outbreak;
- Provide a continuous supply of safe and wholesome food to consumers; and
- Maintain business continuity for producers, transporters, and food processors through response planning.
This work is funded by USDA-APHIS National Preparedness and Incident Coordination (NPIC), and is a collaborative effort between the Center for Food Security and Public Health at Iowa State University, the Center for Animal Health and Food Safety at the University of Minnesota, the University of California--Davis, federal and state government personnel, and industry. The egg, milk, turkey, and pork projects have been in process for a number of years. The Secure Beef Supply project recently received funding. All Secure Food Supply Plans are drafts that may be modified in an actual disease outbreak.
