GAP TRAINING: DESIGN A FOOD SAFETY PLAN FOR YOUR FARM!

Are you a farmer interested in produce safety? Do you want to understand produce safety issues and Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) and third party audits? Then this two-day workshop is for you!

Day 1: (8:30am - 3:30pm) - "Produce Food Safety" - Are you a farmer interested in produce safety? Day one of this two-day training will focus on learning about food safety, based on harmonized food safety standards; both pre & post harvest. This includes both Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and Good Handling Practices (GHP). We will also provide a brief update on the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and help explain if and how FSMA will impact you.

Day 2: (8:30am - 3:30pm) - "Writing a Farm Food Safety Plan" - Are your markets asking for food safety plans or third party verification? Day two will cover key aspects of developing a customized food safety manual for your farm. Our instructors will be there to take you step by step through the process, provide you with templates for your food safety manual and logs, and answer questions. By the time you leave day two, you will be well on your way to having created your own food safety plan.

Instructors: Lindsay Gilmour and Jeff Stoltzfus
