CANCELLED: Farm Food Safety and Purchasing Locally Grown Produce: What's It All Mean?

October 17, 2017
9:30 AM - 3:00 PM
Geneva, NY

This event has been cancelled due to low registration numbers. Refunds will be issued to those that pre-registered.

Attention locally-grown food buyers, purchasers, distributors, farm-to-school or -institution programs, chefs, and healthy eating programmers: 
Every person that buys locally grown produce directly from farmers should have a basic understanding of the food safety guidelines and practices that the farmers follow. What is GAPs and why is it important to me? This training will allow you to ask your questions and you will leave having a clearer understanding of standards, regulatory requirements, and the practices followed by farmers to reduce microbial risk. 

This workshop will cover programs like GAPs and HGAPs as well as the new federal regulations under the Food Safety Modernization Act. We will also discuss the regulations governing locally processed foods.
