Event Link: Post-Harvest Handling, Food Safety and GAPs Compliance
Organized By: Hungry Turtle Farmers Cooperative
As the demand for local and organic food has exploded in the last five years, so has the expectation on the part of consumers and institutional buyers for production and handling systems designed to minimize microbial contamination. Join a farmer and consultant who has been through the audit process and helped others through it for this review of practical food safety, how to develop a written food safety plan, and how to set up record keeping systems that support business processes rather than existing outside of the system.
