YHEC has worked with European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the Global Alliance for Probiotics (GAP), Danone Institute International and several major food companies to provide systematic reviews, research evidence and evidence tools.
YHEC is a partner in five EFSA Framework agreements, collaborating with a range of partners to support systematic reviews commissioned by EFSA.
YHEC is partnered with Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine and the Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses to promote the use of systematic reviews for animals and food. To find out more information on our joint work visit SYREAF.org
