Description

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 our organizer page at http://ufifasfshncrec.eventbrite.com/ for a list of upcoming Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training courses.


WHAT TO EXPECT

Hands-on curriculum targets the "what to look for, what to do, and how to do it" for the critical areas of a farm where food safety concerns need to be addressed, including: preharvest field assessments; hygiene facilities; agricultural water and well inspections; packinghouse assessments; cleaning and sanitizing of harvest tools, postharvest equipment, and packing areas; verification of sanitation; and environmental monitoring.


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.
