Get ready for the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)! Has your produce farm sent a supervisor to attend the Produce Safety Alliance (PSA)-approved workshop that meets the FSMA training requirement for produce growers?
If not, the CCOF Foundation is here to help. Produce farms that gross between $250,000-$500,000 in annual sales may be required by the FSMA Produce Safety Rule to have a supervisor attend a PSA-approved workshop by January 28, 2019. Produce farms that gross less than $250,000 in annual sales may be required to have a supervisor attend a PSA-approved workshop by January of 2020. Attend this low-cost, pre-conference that will fulfill this requirement.
During the day-long workshop trainers will cover FSMA-required practices, recordkeeping, and other details. Lunch and materials are included in registration. After attending the entire course, participants will be eligible to receive a certificate that verifies they have completed the training.
Instructors vary depending on workshop language. All instructors are certified by PSA to teach PSA grower trainings and are familiar with organic and sustainable farming practices.
This workshop is based upon work that is supported by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under award number 2017-70020-27242.
Date: Wednesday, January 23 – 7:30am - 5:00pm
Location: Asilomar Conference Grounds
