FMI says labeling of menu items should not include grocery stores

The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) announced it is now accepting applications for food safety and auditing scholarships for the 2014-2015 academic year. Students majoring in food and agricultural science are welcome to apply.

Last year, scholarships were awarded to students working to address Listeria monocytogenes, improve auditing systems and further food safety regulation. Scholarships are competitive and are based on academic ability, leadership potential, motivation and initiative, along with a passion for the food industry and auditing.

“As food buyers and sellers increasingly rely on accredited third-party certification to help ensure the products they sell to consumers are safe, food safety depends on a core of well-trained auditors with sophisticated auditing skills, food industry experience and a food science or related degree,” says Cathy Polley, RPh, executive director of the FMI Foundation.

“The FMI Foundation is proud to offer these scholarships to undergraduate and graduate food and agricultural science students in order to nurture the talent that will help preserve consumer trust in the future.”
