Food Safety Presentations Online

Presentations from the Food Safety for Organic Production and Handling of Fresh Produce Conference are available on-line. Growers, industry and research professionals collaborated to create a two-day course on the topic, with content customized specifically to address the needs and concerns of organic growers and handlers. Attendees learned about: pre- and post-harvest best management practices for food safety in fresh organic production; water, wildlife, workers and amendments; post-harvest plant pathology and factors that influence food safety; state and federal regulations impacting organic growers and handlers; and more. PowerPoint presentations from the conference can be viewed and downloaded from the web site.
