The Food Protection Task Forces, supported by the Division of Federal/State Relations at FDA, convene stakeholders in food safety. These stakeholders form Taskforces that consist of government, industry, academia, and consumer groups that create an effective state-wide infrastructure for outreach, response, and information sharing. Currently, there are 28 state Taskforces.
Datastream created a website ecosystem allowing one web infrastructure to manage all 28 websites simply and effectively. Each task force controls their individual website, with results of the efforts sharing across all other sites and aggregating into one unified view of task force activity.
We have also implemented private, branded CoreSHIELD mini-portals for each task force and created a simple, end-user manageable mobile app infrastructure allowing each task force to manage and deploy their own iOS and Android mobile apps.
Over the upcoming year, we will continue supporting the strategic growth of the web ecosystem, as well as social media and mobile platforms. The partnership between DSCXN and DFSR has been great, and the results are impacting food safety in the country!
