Produce Safety Rule of the
Food Safety Modernization Act
We are SO excited! MFMA and MFVGA and MCFP are converging on St. Cloud at the River's Edge Convention Center, Jan. 17 & 18, 2019, where we will all hold our conferences together - and everyone will get to attend any of the workshops offered! Additionally, we are hosting a grower training for produce farmers the day prior to the conferences, on Jan. 16 (see info on that in the column to the right >>>>)
Plus - the trade show will be filled with exhibitors that support all 3 groups - something for everyone!
Online registration coming soon; click here for a quick peek at the workshops scheduled so far.
The Produce Safety Rule is a new law under the auspices of the Food and Drug Administration that provides training for all produce farmers, no matter how big or small. MFMA strongly encourages ALL produce farmers in Minnesota to attend one of these trainings, even if your farm is exempt - it's really great training! Here are some points covered in the training:
