This is for those farmers who are interested in produce safety or who are being required by buyers to develop food safety plans and provide third party verification of their food safety practices. The Food Safety Modernization Act proposed produce safety rules have been released with a tentative final rule anticipated sometime in the summer of 2015. These workshops will help growers understand produce safety issues and Good Agricultural Practices as well as the FSMA proposed produce rule and third party audits. The second day will be devoted to writing farm food safety plans so that each participant can work on their own farm plan. These workshops are sponsored by the National GAPs Program, Cornell Cooperative Extension, Cornell University, Produce Safety Alliance, and the New York State Department of Ag & Markets with funding from the Genesee Valley Regional Market Authority.
