 Purdue Extension to offer Produce Safety Trainings

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue Extension is offering produce food safety training sessions at locations throughout Indiana to aid farms and growers in learning the basics of food safety and assist in establishing safety programs for their operations.

The trainings last about seven hours and utilize the Produce Safety Alliance curriculum. The content includes an introduction to produce safety; worker health, hygiene and training; soil amendments; wildlife, domesticated animals and land use; agricultural water; postharvest handling and sanitation; and how to develop a farm safety plan.

"These sessions meet the training requirement for farms covered under the Food Safety Modernization Act's produce safety rule," said Scott Monroe, food safety Extension educator. "Even if you aren't required to meet those guidelines, this is a great opportunity for growers to get helpful information in one location and begin the process of learning about produce food safety and developing a food safety program on their farms."

There are currently 18 confirmed training sites. Classes at each site will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time. The sessions are $100 per participant, which includes a curriculum manual, certificate of completion and lunch.
