PSA-Approved Food Safety Workshops

Get Ready for the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)

Check FSMA compliance off your list for 2018.

Has your produce farm sent a supervisor to attend the Produce Safety Alliance (PSA)-approved workshop that meets the FSMA training requirement for produce growers?

If not, we’re here to help. Produce farms that gross between $250,000-$500,000 in annual sales may be required by the FSMA Produce Safety Rule to have a supervisor attend a PSA-approved workshop by January of 2019. Produce farms that gross less than $250,000 in annual sales may be required to have a supervisor attend a PSA-approved workshop by January of 2020. Attend one of our low-cost, in-person workshops that will fulfill this requirement.
