The food, beverage, and consumer products industries, in association with the Grocery Manufacturers Association and Michigan State University (MSU), are partnering to create the Center for Research on Ingredient Safety (CRIS). An independent, academic, science-based center, CRIS will serve as a reliable and unbiased source for information, research, training, and analysis on the safe use of chemical ingredients in consumer packaged goods including foods, beverages, cosmetics, and household consumer products. It will be modeled after already existing centers of expertise at other academic institutions, which focus on allergen and microbiological safety. CRIS will be located at MSU and will be governed by an advisory board composed of multiple stakeholders, including academic, industry, nongovernmental organizations, and regulatory representatives.
