Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Nicole “Nikki” Fried and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services announced the launch of FDACS.gov, the department’s new, modernized website. The rebranding aims to increase awareness about the department’s broad responsibilities in both agriculture and consumer services, and help Floridians access information and services easier.
“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 Consumer Services are broad, and our new website reflects all the ways we’re proud to serve Floridians,” said Commissioner Fried. “This new mobile-optimized, user-friendly site makes it easier to renew a license, file consumer complaints, and find more ways to work, play and eat in Florida.”
Fried first announced the website in a video on Twitter.
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. As part of the website redesign, the Department’s domain name has changed from @FreshFromFlorida.com to @FDACS.gov, which includes email addresses.
