Are your wholesale customers asking to see your food safety plan? Are you considering a food safety certification like GAP? This Tier 2, intermediate workshop will walk you through completing a farm food safety risk assessment. This risk assessment will be customized to your farm, and will act as your operations manual to ensure continuous improvement and implementation of food safety practices.
Your completed risk assessment will be benchmarked to the Harmonized GAP standard, preparing you for our Tier 3 training, if you want to achieve GAP certification. The workshop will be led by local Extension Agents and food safety specialists. Please bring a laptop if you would like to complete your risk assessment in Excel.
Refreshments and materials are included.
