Food Defense and Security

In accordance with the Bioterrorism Act of 2002, foreign and domestic food facilities that manufacture/process, pack, or hold food for human or animal consumption in the United States must register with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Electronic registration via the internet is available at the FDA website, and additional information to help firms include food security as part of their greater food safety management plan is listed below.
