The Center for Science in the Public Interest marks 50 years of action in food safety. Founded in 1971, the Center for Science in the Public Interest is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year.

It’s perhaps the oldest independent, science-based consumer advocacy organization with a record of accomplishments and a clear and ambitious agenda for improving the food system. The organization doesn’t take funding from government or industry.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, among other activities, CSPI is policing the marketplace and urging regulators to crack down on supplement manufacturers and others who would try to exploit the pandemic for profit.

CSPI provides practical, science-based advice to consumers interested in nutrition, food safety, and health, and leads advocacy for a healthier food environment in communities nationwide.

CSPI’s funding comes from the hundreds of thousands of subscribers to its Nutrition Action Healthletter, which has never accepted advertising, and from foundations and individual donors who support policies that protect the environment and public health.

As one of the nation’s top consumer advocates, CSPI will continue to fight for government policies and corporate practices that promote healthy diets, prevent deceptive marketing practices, and ensure that science is used to promote the public good.

If you’d like to get involved in CSPI’s efforts, subscribe to the Nutrition Action Healthletter.
