Food and Food Safety

A healthy, wholesome and safe food supply is essential to the well-being of Connecticut citizens. Research based information about how food is produced, labeled and distributed can help consumers to make good food choices. Working with farmers, processors, retailers, community groups, and consumers, food safety education and training programs inform about food borne illness, safe food production, sanitation, and safe food handling. Contact Diane Hirsch at or 203-407-3163 for food and food safety education and information resources.
