Acknowledgement Statement

“This [specify: study/report/video/event, etc.] is made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) under Cooperative Agreement No. 7200AA19LE00003 awarded to Purdue University, in partnership with Cornell University, as the management entity for the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety.

Anti-Trafficking Plan

Purdue University has developed an Anti-Trafficking Compliance Plan in alignment with the U.S. government’s zero-tolerance policy regarding trafficking in persons by government contractors and award recipients. An anti-trafficking compliance program must be in place for all subcontractors and subawardees.
