UMass Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training
April 12 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm$50
Join MDAR’s Produce Safety Team and UMass Extension for this local training session on FSMA. Everyone who attends gets to take home a PSA manual as well. Registration closes Friday, 4/7. FSMA training is mandatory for farms covered under the PSR but it’s a great course for anybody serious about produce farming.
Who Should Attend
Fruit and vegetable growers and others interested in learning about produce safety, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), and co-management of natural resources and food safety. This course will also cover the Massachusetts Commonwealth Quality Program (CQP), a voluntary 3rd-party audit program.
This training satisfies the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement for covered farms that “at least one supervisor or responsible party” completes “food safety training … recognized as adequate” by FDA (21 C.F.R. §112.22(c)).
