The Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) is a broad-based public-private alliance of key industry, academia and government stakeholders. It was established in late 2011 by a grant from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to Illinois Institute of Technology’s Institute for Food Safety and Health (IIT IFSH).
The mission of FSPCA is to support safe food production by developing and delivering educational programs that assist the food industry in complying with the preventive controls regulations that were promulgated in response to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
