ASI IS THANKFUL TO WORK WITH ALL OF THESE PARTNERS AND MORE
Show Me Food Safety
Show Me Food Safety is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making the food supply chain safer by promoting food safety best practices and rewarding those devoted to food safety.
Making the Food Supply Safer
Show Me Food Safety uses its resources to work with small farmers and manufacturers to help improve their food safety practices. This small supplier program not only helps small local businesses get onto the shelves of the local grocery stores, but also improves the overall food safety of the supply chain. Additionally, Show Me Food Safety also develops educational outreach programs to help increase awareness of food safety best practices to local communities.
Rewarding Dedicated Food Safety Individuals
Show Me Food Safety has two major ways to give back to those who are dedicated to food safety and making the food supply safer. The first is through the Show Me Food Safety Scholarship program for students enrolled in food science, food safety or related field. The second is through the Show Me Food Safety Leadership Award. This award is given annually to an individual who has demonstrated their passion for food safety through their work in the industry
