Purdue gets $10M for food safety lab

Purdue University has received $10 million in federal grants to jump-start a new lab devoted to improving food safety in developing nations.

The funding comes from the U.S. Agency for International Development and will go toward the university’s Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety. Feed the Future is a global hunger and food-security initiative spearheaded by the United States that aims to bring together government, businesses, universities and other partners to help developing countries tackle the root causes of hunger.

In collaboration with Cornell University, the lab will develop programs to improve food safety in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya and Senegal.•
