FDA Launches ‘Dataverse’ Series with Video on 21 Forward

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has launched the first in a planned series of videos called “Into the Dataverse,” part of the agency’s commitment to delivering trusted technology and data solutions.

The first video provides an overview of 21 Forward, a data analytics tool that makes the food supply chain more transparent to the FDA, enabling us to anticipate potential problems and manage those risks before they have real-world implications. FDA developed 21 Forward in 2020 and it has been used in times of crisis, namely the COVID-19 pandemic and the infant formula shortage, to monitor the food supply chain for possible disruptions.

Data modernization is a fundamental goal in FDA’s our New Era of Smarter Food Safety and 21 Forward is a real-world example of data modernization fueling the future of food safety.
