Spring 2020 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?

Our 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.
