Webinar, Friday, February 15 @ 8:30am PST
On January 16, The Center for Produce Safety announced their first Innovation Challenge award. Dave Corsi, chair of the CPS Board of Directors stated, 'This is an invitation and opportunity for technology innovators to develop, refine and focus their solutions to meet a critical industry need; identifying evidence or conditions where cross contamination can take place in our growing environments. This program, currently termed GRABIT - (Grower's Risk Assessment Biomarkers Investigative Tool) is designed to bring tools to the supply chain to manage risk and meet the CPS mission: Fund the science, find solutions and fuel the change.'
During the webinar, CPS representatives will cover the 5 'Ws' - Who should apply? What is a Grower's Risk Assessment Biomarkers Investigative Tool - GRABIT? Where will this tool be used? When is the award application due? Why is this request important?
Drew McDonald, Taylor Farms, chair of the CPS Technical Committee
