Farm Food Safety Training with GAPs (Steuben County)

February 27 - February 28, 2014

Farm Food Safety Training with GAPs (Steuben County)
In recent years, several food borne illness outbreaks in produce have made national news. Both the produce industry and the federal government have stepped up demands for fruit and vegetable farms to meet food safety practice standards. These standards are known as GAPs (Good Agricultural Practices).

A new program, Harmonized GAPs, has been developed to combine several food safety certifications into one program. New York's retail produce buyers, such as Wegmans, are asking growers to adopt Harmonized GAPs certification in many cases.

In response, Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Cornell Vegetable Program, the Cornell Lake Ontario Fruit Team, the Produce Safety Alliance, and the Cornell National GAPs Program, with assistance from NY Ag & Markets, will be presenting a training for farm food safety or GAPs, including Harmonized GAPs. The training is open to all produce farms and related industry people. This workshop is sponsored by NOFA-NY and is partially funded through a grant from the Genesee Valley Regional Market Authority.
