WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This program is an interactive one-day workshop targeted to fresh fruit and/or vegetable growers, harvesters, and packers that turns farm food safety management into an engaging, hands-on and thought provoking exercise.
It’s highly recommended that you attend a Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training Course prior to attending the “Beyond Basic Produce Food Safety” workshop. Visit http://ufifasfshncrec.eventbrite.com/ for a list of upcoming Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training courses.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Working in small groups, you’ll perform a hazard analysis for a working citrus grove and packinghouse. You’ll work to identify the root cause of a potential food safety issue and correct the problem (hands-on) and document the corrective action in an example food safety plan.
BENEFITS OF ATTENDING
After completing this workshop, you’ll leave with an improved understanding of food safety principles and practices that support the production of safe food, as well as Produce Safety Rule compliance, through the visualization of key, real-life, food safety issues discovered through hands-on, problem-based scenarios and you’ll learn to see your operation through the eyes of a microbiologist and practice implementing procedures to reduce the risks in your own operation.
The fee for the training is $35. Registration includes the training materials, lunch, and refreshments..
Registration is limited. For general registration questions, contact Sarah McCoy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 863-956-8632.
