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 at a demonstration farm and packinghouse. You'll work to identify the root cause of the 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 scenarions 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.
