FARRP

Food Allergy Research and Resource Program

FARRP was established in 1995 as a cooperative venture between the University of Nebraska and seven founding industry charter members.  Today, FARRP has more than 70 member companies, more than one dozen staff members and several graduate students.  FARRP has two primary missions:

Mission 1
Develop and provide the food industry with credible information, expert opinions, tools, and services relating to allergenic foods.

Mission 2
Develop and provide the agricultural biotechnology industry with credible information, expert opinions, tools, and services relating to novel foods and food ingredients including genetically modified products.

FARRP takes a comprehensive approach working with and collaborating with research institutions, governmental authorities, consumer groups, and scientific societies around the globe to share our experience and knowledge to improve the safety of food products for consumers with food allergies and sensitivities.

  3. Effective July 13th, we have a new Sample Analysis Request Form.  The changes you will find on the new form will be our new submission address, a request for a hard copy of your testing report (as a green initiative for our company), and a limit of the amount of characters for sample identification.  The updated request form may also be found at our website at www.farrp.org under Confidential Analysis, subheading Submissions and Forms.  As always please feel free to contact us with any questions.

NOTE:   The FARRP lab will be closed for testing starting July 17, 2015 through July 22, 2015 for the lab's relocation to our new facility.

At this time we anticipate resuming testing on July 23, 2015 however this date may be subject to change depending on the move. Once testing resumes, there will be some delays in turnaround times. We will make every effort to keep the delays to a minimum.
