The Partnership for Food Protection (PFP) is excited to announce a new member joining the PFP Governing Council (GC), Bailey Whiten, with the Georgia Department of Agriculture (https://agr.georgia.gov/).
Whiten joined the Georgia Dept. of Agriculture in 2016 and currently serves as the Assistant Division Director of the Ag Inputs Division, where she oversees the Animal Feed Program and compliance of the Fertilizer and Seed Programs. Previously, she held the title of Animal Feed Regulatory Program Standards (AFRPS) Coordinator for Georgia. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and Dairy Science from the University of Georgia. In addition to her newest role with the PFP, Bailey is also an active member of Georgia’s Food and Feed Rapid Response Team and the Georgia State Agricultural Response Team. Her service with the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) includes membership on the Pet Food Committee, Ingredient Definitions Committee, Enforcement Issues Committee, Feed Labeling Committee, and Board of Directors.
Whiten joins more than a dozen other members of the GC, who each play an important role in the PFP structure. GC members collaborate with federal, state, tribal, territorial, local, association, industry and consumer group representatives on strategic projects, programs and initiatives aimed at helping protect the nation’s food supply. Each GC member also supports one of the active workgroups and their activities as a liaison. PFP is the structure used to coordinate representatives with expertise in food, feed, epidemiology, laboratory, animal health, environment, and public health to develop and implement an Integrated Food Safety System (IFSS).
