What you don't know can hurt you. In modern society, we often don't know where our food comes from. That's where Katie Swanson steps in. As Vice President of Food Safety for Ecolab, Katie works with teams developing new products to keep our food supply safe. She identifies emerging food safety trends and new control strategies, and shares them with a wide variety of people.

A college class in microbiology inspired Katie to pursue a career fighting the spread of food-borne infectious diseases. Perhaps not surprisingly, Katie also loves cooking and dining in her spare time.
