FDA Announces Food Traceability Challenge Winners

  • Earlier this year we reported on FDA’s launch of the FDA New Era of Smarter Food Safety Low- or No-Cost Tech-Enabled Traceability Challenge. The public challenge sought to encourage the development of affordable, tech-enabled traceability tools to protect people and animals from contaminated foods. The public challenge ran from June 1, 2021 to July 31, 2021.

  • On September 13, 2021, FDA announced the winners of the challenge. FDA selected 12 winners representing the United States, Canada and New Zealand from over 90 submissions from around the world.  FDA stated that it “is committed to and will continue to do its part to help ensure that companies of all sizes, including small to midsize ones, can use and benefit from new tracing technologies.”

  • FDA will host a webinar on Tuesday, September 28 at 11 a.m. ET, in which the winning teams will present their solutions and take questions during a live Q&A session.
