Tools Organic Farmers Need to Meet Food Safety Requirements
Wednesday, August 10, 2022
The Organic Center has partnered with The University of Rhode Island (URI) to identify the best opportunities for developing cost-effective and organic-compliant tools to help organic farmers navigate food safety risks and third-party certification. Dr. Patrick Baur from URI will present results from a national needs assessment that included farmer-focused listening sessions and a national survey. Specifically, these results will touch on which producers are most impacted on a national level and which food safety requirements are most difficult to synchronize with NOP standards. This needs assessment will also help prioritizing which research and knowledge gaps can best address these specific conflicts. Join Dr. Amber Sciligo of The Organic Center & Dr. Baur as they discuss the research findings and next steps for this pivotal work. This webinar will include a Q&A session following the presentation.
