FoodSHIELD - Defending the Food Supply

The National Center for Food Protection & Defense is sponsoring a website called FoodSHIELD. The mission of FoodSHIELD is to:
"To support federal, state and local governmental regulatory agencies and laboratories in defending the food supply through web-based tools that enhance threat prevention and response, risk management, communication and asset coordination, as well as public education".
To accomplish this mission FoodSHIELD has developed a series of web-based and computer desktop applications or tools such as LabDIR which captures farm-to-table information and FoodAgDIR which helps locate state, local, and federal agencies involved in food safety programs.
