Produce Safety Webinar Series

The first year of FSMA Produce Safety inspections in Idaho revealed a few key areas in which farms can make adjustments to their food safety practices to be in compliance with the rule. What can growers do to be better prepared for inspection or improve in critical areas following an inspection?


This three-part webinar series addresses the areas that were most identified in 2020 grower survey data as being topics producers need the most help understanding — pest control in buildings, the differences between GAP and FSMA, and how to compost safely under the PSR.

This three-part webinar series is designed to prepare growers for successful inspection by improving their health and hygiene practices, sanitation of buildings, tools and equipment, and recordkeeping. These webinars were based off the biggest areas of non-compliance in the 2019 inspection year.
