Event Details

With increasing demand for food safety plans from retailers and the final Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations coming soon, now is a great time to start thinking about your food safety plan.

This course is designed for growers and handlers who are new to Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Food Safety, staff members who need training in food safety, and those organic professionals needing to update and improve their food safety program/documentation.

This two-day workshop will prepare you for the new GFSI-benchmarked food safety certification offered by CCOF. The training will utilize the GLOBALG.A.P. IFA standards and the Produce Safety Standard (PSS) for North American suppliers, i.e. the Harmonized Standards.

Participants will learn:

  • The key elements in a food safety plan
  • How to create the documents necessary for their operation’s food safety plan
  • How to successfully host a food safety audit


The course will include lecture, individualized instruction, sample food safety documents to use in your plan, and small group activities.
