AFDO connects public and private sector professionals from various disciplines to facilitate sharing of information and collaboration on activities of mutual interest.
We work with food and medical-products professionals from a host of disciplines, including industry, government, academia, and consumer groups. This connection of diverse groups allows for a richer exchange of information, often resulting in a unified voice advocating for regulations and positions on food and medical-product safety issues.
