Food Safety and Quality
Food safety and quality is foundational to keeping eaters and customers healthy and happy. Complying with buyers’ requirements around food safety certification (such as Good Agricultural Practices) and quality can be essential to accessing wholesale markets. However, navigating the changing landscape of food safety certification and Federal food safety regulation, and explaining food safety in a manner that is accessible to a diversity of farms and food businesses, is not easy. But you’re not alone. This group is a place to bring your questions, your best practices, your needs, and good ideas on all things related to food safety, GAP, GroupGAP, Quality Management Systems, FSMA, and farm food safety training.
This group meets monthly on the first Wednesday of the month from 1 – 2:30pm EST. Register for those calls here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYqfuGtqTgqHdExCSGQRxVL1YzTRIUJ_rEM
