The Food and Agriculture Protection Training Consortium (FAPTC) is a multi-institutional consortium comprised of eight university-based training centers and an administrative hub-the International Food Protection Training Institute (IFPTI).
The consortium is focused on developing and delivering food protection training to U.S. government officials, industry, third-party auditors, and regulatory officials in other countries.
IFPTI created national and international curricula of standards-based, career-spanning training for food protection officials. The curricula support a fully integrated national food safety system.
