915 Labs is proud to announce that we have become an industry member of the Institute for Food Safety and Health (IFSH), which houses four important centers dedicated to advancing food safety, processing innovation and nutrition research.
IFSH is housed within the Moffett Campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) a multi-building complex that offers state-of-the-art food processing technologies, synergistic research and a scientific brain trust. Our IFSH membership will give 915 Labs the unique opportunity to work collaboratively with dozens of industry partners, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Division of Food Processing Science & Technology (DFPST) and academic researchers focused on the application and advancement of food safety and nutrition technologies.
Through IFSH, we plan to continue to broaden the exposure and application of MATS and MAPS within the food industry and incorporate our microwave technologies into new and existing research programs and industry training events. In addition, the Center for Nutrition Research and Center for Process Innovation within IFSH offers a great opportunity to conduct cross comparative nutrition and processing research within the preservation arena.
At 915 Labs, we strongly believe that our IFSH membership will be a wonderful opportunity to proactively collaborate with all organizations dedicated to developing and applying the next generation of food safety knowledge and technology. In conjunction with our foundational partnership with Washington State University and the newly named NIFA Center of Excellence on Food Safety Processing, we have a robust platform for integrating MATS and MAPS into a wide range of ongoing industry research and training.
