FoodSHIELD is a web-based platform that creates community, increases collaboration, and facilitates communication among thousands of public and private entities involved in protecting and defending the United States food supply. From laboratories and regulatory agencies at local, county, state, and federal offices, to academia and industry, FoodSHIELD is a central portal where people in all 50 states work collectively to safeguard the national food supply through secure, integrated resources. FoodSHIELD is sponsored by the National Center for Food Protection and Defense (NCFPD), a Department of Homeland Security National Center of Excellence, as well as by the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) and by grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. FoodSHIELD was built entirely with Adobe technology from the ground up, and is primarily powered by ColdFusion. The full case study has been posted online.
