On Monday, September 16th, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services led by Commissioner Nikki Fried launched the department's new website FDACS.gov, previously FreshFromFlorida.com.
The launch was first announced by Commissioner Fried in a video on Twitter.
In a press release, Commissioner Fried describes positives about the new website as being a "mobile-optimized" and "user-friendly site" that makes renewing a license, filing a consumer complaint, and finding information easier.
With this rebranding, the Department hopes to help Floridians access information and services more easily.
According to the Department, "The redesigned website creates a more efficient user experience, with a new layout responsive for all platforms. Clearer navigation, streamlined menus, and a user location-personalized home page make finding local contacts and resources simpler, such as nearby farmers’ markets and job opportunities."
If you haven't visited the site yet, it's worth exploring.
“From supporting Florida’s farmers and ranchers, to protecting consumers from credit card fraud, fake charities, telemarketers, and travel scams, the responsibilities of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumers Services are broad, and our new website reflects all the ways we’re proud to serve Floridians,” said Fried.
