What is BIFSCo?
The Beef Industry Food Safety Council (BIFSCo) brings together representatives from all segments of the beef industry to develop industry-wide, science-based strategies to solve beef safety challenges.
The Beef Industry Food Safety Council is coordinating a broad effort to solve biological, chemical (radiological) or physical hazards focusing on research prioritization and information dissemination. Although industry segments may not always agree on all issues, it is critical we be united in our efforts to solve food safety challenges.
To help fulfill the BIFSCo commitment to develop strategies that solve the challenges of food borne pathogens in beef, industry representatives from all sectors collaborate on an ongoing basis to create unified best practices to serve as guidance for developing customized safety documents. These documents explain procedures that have been implemented successfully throughout the industry.
In addition to BIFSCo-developed documents, other resources with safety information applicable to the different sectors are included in the section.
