Tell your food safety story.

Join us in creating a documentary film that will highlight the people and organizations that keep our food safe.


Don't miss your opportunity for change.

You have the unique opportunity to leave a lasting legacy on the global food industry. By contributing your expertise, your stories, and resources, we can create a documentary owned by the food industry and one that will be a powerful learning tool to elevate food safety globally.

Documentaries are known to focus on scary, rare occurrences of food safety failures. This tarnishes our reputation and deflates the spirits of those working to keep customers safe. Unlike documentaries like Netflix’s Poisoned, our film focuses on the people, processes, tech, and advancements so that employees feel empowered to innovate and continue protecting us all.

The Film

This 60-minute documentary will feature food safety stories in key industries along the food production continuum: agriculture, transportation, manufacturing, grocery, and food service.
