Food Safety News
FOOD SAFETY NEWS was founded in 2009 when print and broadcast media were facing consolidation and steep budget cuts. Food safety attorney Bill Marler saw an opportunity to pull together a team of talented journalists and give them the resources to provide timely reporting on food safety issues like no other news outlet could. Today, their original, in-depth reports are published daily and are complemented by contributed articles and opinion pieces written by food safety leaders from every sector of the industry.
