October 17, 2017

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

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: 
Cornell Cooperative Extension through the Cornell Vegetable Program, the Lake Ontario Fruit Team, and NOFANY is presenting an educational session on farm food safety for all types of locally grown food buyers. 

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.

The agenda will cover:
  • What are GAPs, HGAPs, other third party audit schemes,
  • FSMA federal regulations
  • What does this mean for farmers and what are the financial impacts on farmers
  • What does this mean for buyers
  • Traceability and recall
  • Farmer and buyer testimonials
  • Locally processed foods regulation overview
  • Action steps
Cost: $25/attendee, includes lunch.
