We're excited to announce an additional training seminar that impacts all growers in our region on Monday, January 16, 2017. This will be held at the Orchard Mesa Research Station in Grand Junction.
Focus: FSMA (Food Safety Moderization Act) Produce Safety Rule Training
Attendees will be trained on the requirements of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule through the PSA Grower Training Course. This course satisfies the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement outlined in § 112.22(c) that requires ‘At least one supervisor or responsible party for your farm must have successfully completed food safety training at least equivalent to that received under standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by the Food and Drug Administration.’
Attendance fees will be associated due to the large volume of training materials required. Rates and specific times will be released soon. Please check back for more information.
