Are you are a small-scale food producer? If so, you will want to attend this workshop. This workshop is intended for small (< $1 million in sales/year) producers of fermented, canned, and other shelf-stable foods.
This one-day course is a hands-on opportunity for processors to develop their food safety documentation in small groups with individual coaching from instructors.
There is required documentation you will need to complete to be compliant with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This includes documentation of your size exemption as a "qualified facility" and various food safety programs.
Participants are encouraged to bring their existing documentation, if they have it, for review by instructors. Attendees should leave with completed or nearly completed food safety documentation for size exemptions, Good Manufacturing Practices, and Preventive Control Food Safety Plans as relevant.
