I’m Dr Cathy Davies, a food scientist and food safety consultant based in New Jersey and working across America

After a 20-year career teaching food science and nutrition to undergraduates, I left to start Food Safety Mid Atlantic. While I have lots of fancy qualifications – a BS in Human Nutrition, a PhD in Food Science, and various food safety certificates – the truth is that I love food. I love growing, cooking, and eating food as well as studying and writing about food.

Want to talk about food, not just food safety? I’m your woman. I love talking to people who are interested in food. 

I take people’s ideas to make understandable easy-to-follow food safety plans; this includes drawing flowcharts to clearly explain production process and carrying out a hazard analysis so that you can control the hazards in your food. I support people who have great ideas for new food products by helping you understand the language and jargon used in food regulations and by making your food safety plan easy to follow.

I am especially interested in supporting small and mid sized food businesses who are interested in local and regional food systems, sustainable and resilient food systems, and are passionate about healthy and equitable food access.

When you work with me, you will get individual attention and explanations about every step.
