Virtual Integrated Real-Time User AnaLytics (VIRTUAL) Tool

Principal Investigator: 
Tejas Bhatt
The current global food system is increasingly complex where it is incredibly difficult to analyze the macro-level effects of micro-level decisions. Realistically, there isn't a mechanism to scientifically and accurately depict the dynamics of the supply chain distribution of a food product...

Risk Mitigation and Food Supply Chain Design and Control

Principal Investigator: 
Alan Erera
This project has two broad aims. The first is to develop improved risk analysis methods for quantifying the vulnerability of a food product supply chain that may be used by an adversary to deliver a chemical or biological agent. The second aim is to create new food supply chain design and control...

Food Product Tracing Technology Capabilities and Interoperability

Principal Investigator: 
Tejas Bhatt; Jennifer (Previous PI) McEntire
Despite the best efforts of food safety professionals, contaminated food continues to enter the food supply. It is imperative that contaminated food be removed from the supply chain as quickly as possible to protect public health and stabilize markets. In addition to findings highlighted in the...

Modeling Sampling Strategies for Detecting Intentional Contamination of Imported Food Systems

Principal Investigator: 
Randall Singer
Significant quantities of fresh and frozen food are imported into the U.S. each year. In particular, fruits, vegetables and seafood are imported from countries around the world, and once these products arrive into the U.S., they are broadly distributed and either consumed directly or used as...

Freight Transportation Risk and Resiliency in International Food Supply Chains

Principal Investigator: 
Alan Erera
The objectives of the proposed research are to identify, and to determine how to mitigate, risks in the freight transportation components of international food supply chains, with the intent of enabling significant improvement in food supply chain security, preparedness, and resiliency. Focusing...

Diagnostic Tools and Gap Analysis for Food Firms' Defense Practices

Principal Investigator: 
Jean Kinsey
1. To refine and test the Diagnostic Tool for Food Defense, a deliverable product from the Supply Chain Benchmarking Project. 2. To have several food companies using the Diagnostic Tool and participating in the practices that will make their companies and the food they handle safer and enable them...

Supply Chain Productivity and Resiliency—Logistics and Transportation

Principal Investigator: 
Alan Erera
This project examines the impact of new freight transportation security measures on productivity and resiliency in the food supply chain. Its objectives include: (1) identifying a set of best practices (primarily through a transportation industry survey, but also through selected analytical studies...
