A few weeks ago, the Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) held a 2-day virtual Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training where the slots filled up quick. We told you then they were already working on plans to hold another training. According to GDA Produce Safety Education and Outreach Coordinator Maggie Brown, sign-up for that virtual training is underway.
These Grower Training Courses satisfy the FSMA Produce Safety Rule 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.
