The Food and Drugs Administration has been building partnerships with some of the largest players in the food industry to fight the growing epidemic of food-borne illness.
The latest partnership is between the UPC and a startup called Upenn, which specializes in food-related cybersecurity.
The two companies are developing software that can help businesses detect and prevent fraudulent activity, according to a regulatory filing.
Upenn has worked with the FDA to develop and support its own tools and processes to help food-service companies detect and deter fraud.
In recent years, it has been able to provide help to many of the world’s largest food-services companies, including McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut, and Burger King.
The FDA has previously made use of the company to develop new tools to fight food-safety breaches at restaurants, according in a previous regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
UPC has been partnering with Upenn to develop its own software, which it plans to roll out to all of the food service companies in the U-M ecosystem starting in 2018.
In addition to identifying fraud, the software will help the FDA identify the products in the market that are the most likely to be affected by a food-prevention incident, the filing states.
In addition, the FDA will provide assistance with research and development to help companies identify and develop better food-security measures, such as more effective and more secure storage of food, the document states.
With the help of Upenn’s software, Upenn will also be able to help UPC identify, investigate, and mitigate fraud, according the filing.
The software will also help the agency identify and prevent other types of fraudulent activity in the marketplace, such the sale of counterfeit food, according another document.
According to the FDA, UPC’s partnership with the company will help it continue to build on the capabilities of its food-management software and provide new, improved capabilities to the agency, including a tool that will help identify fraud at UPC-owned food-processing facilities.
As part of the partnership, U.M. Food Innovation Lab and Upenn also have been working together to launch the UMPi Food-Sourcing Center, which is designed to help businesses track and prevent food-supply chain fraud.
“UPC is an innovator in food safety technology,” said Anne W. Fong, the agency’s director of food safety.
“Upenn’s technology provides a unique, comprehensive solution for the UPMI Food-Security Center that can provide critical tools for UPC to assist with detection and prevent fraud.
We are pleased to work with them to help make sure our food safety system is robust and protects consumers.”
Upen, which was founded in the late 1990s, was formed to build and manage the Uppsala Food-Mining Facility.
Upenn recently announced that the facility will be upgraded to be a food security facility for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The facility, which operates as a state-of-the-art food processing facility, has produced more than 100 million kilograms of food and processed more than 400 million kilograms in the past five years, according its website.
Uppsal was the first U.K.-based food safety company to receive FDA approval for its UMP software and other products, according an FDA news release.
Uppsals software, called Smu, was approved in April 2016.
Last year, Upen acquired Uppsalo’s technology and continued to work closely with Uppsa.
Upen has been developing software to help the company detect fraud and to improve its technology in response to its own breaches at its own food-testing facilities, according a regulatory report from last year.
Uppi is currently being developed for use in Uppsas food-technology testing facility.
Uppi, Uppsali, and Upen have all signed on as advisors to Uppsabecompany on the project.
Other food-based security technology companies have also developed software to aid in food security and traceability, according Toomas Vejonis, Uptown’s food-products-safety manager.
“Uppsali is building a solution to help detect fraud in food,” Vejons said.
“It has been used to help track down food fraud in Uppas food processing facilities.
Smu helps identify fraudulent products in food.”
