FIC, a campaign of the Government Accountability Project (GAP), seeks to ensure food integrity by supporting whistleblowers whose disclosures impact all areas of food production from soil to plate. Galvanizing around the issue of food integrity, FIC works with strategic partners on various campaigns and events.
In November 2009, the following organizations were supporters of Empowering Employees to Protect Food Integrity, a GAP-hosted conference acknowledging the role of employees as a first line of defense against food adulteration.
