North American Raspberry & Blackberry Association

North American Raspberry & Blackberry Association is closely associated with the North Bramble Growers Association, but is a separate body. The association was originally incorporated as the North American Bramble Growers Association (NABGA) in 1985. It established its federal tax-exempt status (as an agricultural, or organization) in 1987. It changed to NARBA in January 2008, by vote of members at the association’s yearly convention. Members voted to make additional changes to the association’s purposes and bylaws at this time. NARBA’s Mission is: to promote the marketing and production of raspberries and blackberries in North America through education, research and communication; to provide a unified voice to represent the bramble industry; to promote blackberries and raspberries to the general public.

About North American Raspberry & Blackberry Association

Food safety is a technical discipline describing preparation, handling, and storage of food in ways that inhibit foodborne illness. Research activities and policies will help to cope with the three main challenges these globe is facing today: securing effective food production in face of a growing world food demand; ensuring sustainable management of natural resources and climate action; to contribute to a balanced territorial development The pathways within this line of thought are safety between market and the industry and then between the consumer and the market. Food can transmit disease from person to person and as serve as a growth medium for bacteria that causes food poisoning. There are numerous Food Safety Societies worldwide both national and international. However, “North American Raspberry & Blackberry Association” stands out to be one of the most renowned societies for Raspberry and blackberry growers worldwide. Food Safety and Food Safety Societies in different parts of the world are as follows:

  • American Food Safety Societies: National Food Security Surveys are the main survey tool used by the USDA to measure food security in US. Based on respondents' answers to survey questions, the household can be placed on a continuation of food security defined by the USDA. The United States Department of Agriculture defines food insecurity as "limited or indefinite availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or limited or uncertain ability to attain suitable foods in socially acceptable ways. There are several societies working on different field, out of which almost 75 USA Food Safety Societies and associations are present.
  • European Food Safety Societies: Agriculture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture, together with the bio-based industries, are integral parts of the European economy and society. Relying on the use of limited natural resources, these sectors produce and process biological resources to satisfy the demand of consumers and a wide range of industries for food, feed, bio-energy and bio-based products. EFSA also communicates to the public in an open and transparent way on all matters within its remit. More than 52 Food Safety Societies in Europe are contributing towards Food Safety research activities through their annual congress, journal and newsletters.
  • Asia-Pacific Food Safety Societies: There are almost 32 Asian Food Safety Societies working on human, animal as well as plant Food Safety. Nine Fleishman Hillard offices in APAC have been monitoring trends in the industry since the start of 2016 in order to better understand why these food safety issues seem to be increasing in frequency, as well as the impact heightened media scrutiny is having on food and beverage brands in the region. Latest research shows that 80% of Chinese consumers are dissatisfied with food safety, with the majority blaming food companies for failing to address this issue.
  • Middle East Food Safety Societies: It is difficult to grow food crops in the Middle East due to scarcity of water supply and limited availability of arable land. The desalted seawater used by Saudi Arabia to meet the ever-increasing water demand in cities is too costly for irrigation use. Saudi Arabia’s growing food insecurity has led it to buy or lease arable land in different countries, including world’s hungriest nations Ethiopia and Sudan. Middle East has almost 24 Food Safety Associations working on food safety.
  • Food Safety Societies Conferences: There are almost 100 Food Safety Meetings and conferences which are scheduled by the Food Safety societies for the year 2016 and 2017 in different parts of the globe. These international Food Safety Conferences and Food Safety Annual Meetings are intended to bring together all the recent researches, new innovations and findings in a global platform
