Sacramento, Calif., (May 26, 2017) – Produce Safety Training On May 25, 2017 in Woodland by the Food Safety Training Partnership was heavily attended. Nearly 50 farmers, supervisors and others completed the 8-hour certificate course.
Farm Employers Labor Service is partnering with California Farm Bureau and the Safe Food Alliance to offer producer food safety training mandated by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) through the Food Safety Training Partnership.
Training will be offered in various locations throughout California in 2017:
- June 8, 2017: Hyatt Regency Monterey, 1 Old Golf Course Road, Monterey, CA Register Here

- June 20, 2017: Durham Memorial Hall, Durham, CA Register Here

FSMA requires all food producers to meet new standards for food safety. This includes new requirements for on-farm employees. At least one responsible party from each covered farm is required to receive produce safety training meeting the minimum FDA standard.
The Partnership’s training will allow participants to receive a one-day, seven-module produce safety training course, which has been approved by the FDA as the standardized curriculum according to the new rule. The rule is final now and producers will be required to comply in early 2018. This producer food safety training will help you understand the basic requirements of the Produce Safety Rule as well as meet the mandatory training requirements.
