Stephen Ostroff continues to champion food safety and traceability

Chainvu Inc., an IoT and SaaS company providing food and pharma supply chains with continuous, live monitoring of location, integrity, safety, and quality of product shipments, announced today that Dr Stephen Ostroff has joined it’s Advisory Board.  Having retired in early 2019 from the US Food and Drug Administration as Deputy Commissioner for Foods and Veterinary Medicine, Dr Ostroff also served on two occasions as the FDA’s Acting Commissioner and was also the agency’s Chief Scientist and Chief Medical and Public Health Officer for the Foods Program.

I look forward to assisting Chainvu as it develops its strategy, priorities and innovations in making food and medical products safer for everyone."
