The mission and long-term objective of FIC is to enhance overall food integrity by facilitating truth-telling. FIC seeks to accomplish this mission by strategically working to alter the relationship of power between the food industry and consumers; protecting the rights of those who speak out against the practices that compromise food integrity; and empowering industry whistleblowers and citizen activists.
FIC is a program of the Government Accountability Project, the nation’s leading whistleblower protection and advocacy organization. GAP’s mission is to promote corporate and government accountability by protecting whistleblowers, advancing occupational free speech, and empowering citizen activists. Founded in 1977 and located in Washington, D.C., GAP is a nonpartisan, public interest group.
GAP is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with an operating budget of around $2.5 million. Gifts to GAP are tax-deductible. The vast majority of our funds come from over 10,000 individual donors and foundations such as the CS Fund, the Open Society Foundations and Rockefeller Family Fund. Additional support comes from legal fees, settlement awards, and services provided.
