FSMA Produce Safety Rule/Produce Safety Alliance Approved Grower Training Course

The Produce Safety Alliance (PSA) Grower Training Course has been designed to provide a foundation of Good Agricultural Practices knowledge that includes emphasis on co-management of food safety and environmental management goals, while outlining the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule. The PSA Grower Training Course is one way to satisfy the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement outlined in § 112.22(c) that requires ‘At least one supervisor or responsible party for your farm must have successfully completed food safety training at least equivalent to that received under standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by the Food and Drug Administration.’ This course will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, November 30 and Thursday, December 1 at the Middlesex County Extension Center, 1066 Saybrook Road, Haddam, Connecticut 06438. Snow Date is December 2nd. In order to obtain a certificate that provides evidence of compliance with the training requirements of the rule, you must be present for the entire two-day course, so do not make plans for the snow date! We have received approval from the Department of Agriculture to cover the registration fee under produce safety funding from the FDA.
