From the organizers:
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The course will include a tour of the Feeding the Gulf Coast facility and covering content contained in these Produce Safety Alliance modules:
Introduction to Produce Safety
Worker Health, Hygiene, and Training
Wildlife, Domesticated Animals, and Land Use
Agricultural Water (Part I: Production Water; Part II: Postharvest Water)
Postharvest Handling and Sanitation
How to Develop a Farm Food Safety Plan
In addition to produce safety best practices, key parts of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirements will be covered. There will be time for questions and discussion, so participants should come prepared to share their experiences and produce safety questions.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Fruit and vegetable growers and others interested in learning about produce safety, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), and co-management of natural resources and food safety. The PSA Grower Training Course is one way to satisfy the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement outlined in § 112.22(c) that requires ‘At least one supervisor or responsible party for your farm must have successfully completed food safety training’.
