Farm to Table Program

About the Program

Participants will explore the leading exporting animal food production systems from farm-to-table in Chile while considering aspects of animal welfare and health, food safety, food protection and public health.  Site visits along the food supply chain, facilitated discussions with key government and private sector leaders, and interactive cross-culture group activities are designed to integrate knowledge and skills in food safety, animal health and public health. The program is open to food and animal health industry professionals, government regulators and policymakers, as well as students in public health, veterinary medicine and other health-focused degree programs.

Key Objectives

  • Develop awareness, understanding and familiarity of key animal food systems, in exporting countries such as Chile, and recognize the components of the global food production and international trade.
  • Contrast the similarities and differences among the food systems in Chile, the United States and other countries
  • Promote and catalyze collaborative group leadership through network building opportunities, experiential and structured learning activities, and group activities.
