The Intentional Adulteration Assessment Tool (IAAT) developed in partnership with the Chemical Security Analysis Center (CSAC), Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), and the Food Protection and Defense Institute (FPDI) received the Excellence in Technology Transfer Award from the Federal Laboratory Consortium. A total of thirty awards will be recognized at the FLC National Meeting in Philadelphia, PA on April 25th, 2018. The Federal Laboratory Consortium is a network of over 300 federal laboratories, agencies and research centers that accelerate the commercialization of federal technologies.
The Intentional Adulteration Assessment Tool (IAAT) is a food defense program that allows food companies to model their processes to identify potential vulnerabilities to chemical, toxic or pathogenic adulterants intentionally added to a product. FPDI was contracted by CSAC in 2016 to enhance the technology and make available to the food industry. After a recent beta test, FPDI will make IAAT available on the FOODShiled portal.
