2005 Highlights

In the fall of 2005, FSN launched a redesigned website with expanded listserv and reference database searching. Four blogs were also initiated, to stimulate food safety risk dialogue through a new forum.

The number of subscribers to the listserves continues to increase, now numbering more than 12,000 from countries around the world. Based on survey results, the listserves have become a tool-of-choice for producers, regulators, industry, academics and others.

FSN Information Centre is unique in Canada, offering services which are frequently supported by federal or state agencies in other nations. This service is bilingual, English and French. The major users are consumers followed by food and health professionals, government personnel, media, industry and public organizations.
