Food Supply Chain Analytics and Sensing Initiative

CFDA Data Pipeline

 The integrated CFDA Food Tests database provides valuable information related to risk throughout the different supply chain locations (e.g., retailers, manufacturers, wholesale markets, restaurants, farms). Specifically, it provides information on how the CFDA food inspection resources are currently allocated across different locations, and the corresponding failure rate (i.e., fraction of tests that detected adulterants). When combined with technical analysis, it provides information on the likely source of detected adulterants.
