Post a comment

By Joe Whitworth+



Food Safety Net Services (FSNS) has donated $175,000 to Colorado State University’s (CSU) Department of Animal Sciences.

The donation was in honour of Dr Gary Smith and his late wife, Kay. FSNS has worked on food safety projects with CSU and Dr Smith for more than 20 years.

It will benefit the renovation of the Animal Sciences Building, where CSU has designated the “Food Safety Net Services Microbiology Laboratory” on the second floor.

There will also be a visiting scientist office sponsored by FSNS and Dr Smith in the future called the “Gary C. Smith and Food Safety Net Services Visiting Scientist Office.”

FSNS is a national network of ISO 17025 accredited testing laboratories.

John Bellinger, CEO of FSNS, said: “We know the funds will provide new opportunities for future generations of students as they prepare for careers in the food industry.”

The university is constructing a $15m facility to improve best practices in food safety, meat sciences and animal welfare and has also received backing from JBS.

JBS’ contribution includes $7.5m to build the JBS Global Food Innovation Center and an employee educational programme investment of $5m.
