IFPTI, the leader in delivering career-spanning, standards-based food protection training, today announced its 2011-12 cohort of the Fellowship in Food Protection. Today’s announcement comes in conjunction with the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) 115th Annual Educational Conference, being held in Plano, Texas. The Fellowship in Food Protection provides future leaders with an intense professional development experience focused on critical thinking, problem solving and decision making skills, within the framework of food regulatory science, law and policy.

The Fellowship in Food Protection is a year long training that includes a series of sessions held at IFPTI’s global headquarters in Battle Creek, Mich. The sessions are divided into subjects spanning; law, policies, strategies and tools, labeling, evolving science of food protection, food systems control applications; and prevention, intervention and response. The Fellows will also complete research projects during the year and present their findings at the 2012 AFDO Conference in Providence, RI.

In announcing the members of the 2011 Cohort, Gerald Wojtala, executive director of IFPTI, said, “This class supports our objective of having highly-trained regulatory officials. We look forward to working with this group of talented individuals from across the country as we build the training infrastructure for the national integrated food safety system.”
