FAPC receives food safety award.

The Oklahoma Society of Environmental Health Professionals (OSEHP) has awarded the Lloyd Parham Award to the Food & Agricultural Products Center (FAPC) at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma, in recognition of outstanding service in the area of food safety. The award was given during the recently held 53rd Annual OSEHP Education Conference in Stillwater, Oklahoma. It was accepted by Jason Young, quality management specialist, on behalf of FAPC.

"The partnership that FAPC has with regulatory personnel is not by accident," Young said. "Producing safe food is the responsibility of several organizations. The FAPC teams with regulatory personnel and the food-processing facilities to promote and provide food safety training, workshops and research to enhance food safety at all levels."

The Lloyd Parham Award is presented to an individual or organization for "outstanding dedication in the field of food safety, for performing a special act of providing or promoting food safety to the consumers of the state of Oklahoma," according to the nomination form. The award, created three years ago, was presented in its first year to Lloyd Parham, retired chief of consumer protection, who worked many years in dairy and food safety and, said OSEHP President Linda Jones, was instrumental in making OSEHP the professional society that it is.
