The NSF International Food Safety Leadership Awards recognize individuals and organizations that have made a real and lasting impact on food safety. We created the awards program in 2004 to encourage the development of educational programs, processes or technologies that help advance global food safety.

Each year, we seek nominations from leaders throughout the food safety community and convene an independent panel of food safety experts from academia, industry and the regulatory community to select the winners. Nominations are evaluated based on innovation, design and the contributions made to the advancement of food safety.
