Food Safety Plan Development Workshop
February 1 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm$20
Some form of GAPs audit is becoming a standard requirement for produce buyers across market channels. To support Colorado growers, we are offering an opportunity to get a head start writing their plans through a day-long workshop that will include: a grower overview of different GAPs schemes, updates about the current audit and regulatory framework, insight from Colorado Department of Agriculture GAPs and Produce Safety Rule Program staff, and hands on writing assistance to help you craft a food safety plan for your farm. The food safety plan writing component will focus on the most daunting topics of a food safety plan; mitigating and documenting risk associated with wildlife, water quality monitoring and management, cleaning and sanitation, and worker health and hygiene. The format will be very interactive with ample opportunity to discuss challenges and find solutions with experts. See the agenda here.
