Integrated Food Safety Centers of Excellence

The Integrated Food Safety Centers of Excellence (Food Safety CoEs) is a CDC program started in 2012 under the authority of the Food Safety Modernization Act. The Food Safety CoEs provide peer assistance and training to support state and local health departments to build their capacity to track and investigate enteric diseases.

The Food Safety CoEs are Colorado, Minnesota, New York, Tennessee, and Washington state health departments and their partner academic institutions. Each Food Safety CoE serves a region of the country to help guide jurisdictions to the resources that best meet their needs.
