A recent post on the In the Field blog from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) featured Anita MacMullan, director of the Food and Drug Protection Division.

In honor of Women’s History Month, NCDA&CS shared brief interviews with the nine women who serve as division directors.

The Food and Drug Protection Division is the key group that ensures safe food, feed, and drug products in the state.

“‘The most rewarding part of my job is knowing that what we do at Food and Drug makes a difference in people’s lives,” MacMullan said. “We make sure people have a safe food, feed, and drug supply and when we find unsafe products, we take action to mitigate public health impacts.’”

We’re proud to share the NCDA&CS’s spotlight of Anita MacMullan, whose leadership directly relates to the Animal Food Safety work of Feed Milling Extension’s own woman leader, Marissa Herchler Cohen.
