FSMA PSR Grower Training Requirement
This Friday, January 26, 2018, the Food Safety Modernization Act Produce Safety Rule officially goes into effect. One of the new requirements of this law is that at least one employee from each growing operation attends the official Produce Safety Alliance Produce Rule training course. Participants in the course will receive an official certificate of completion. Please note that this certification is for the individual, not the company, so companies may want to consider sending more than one person.
The LGMA offered this training last year, and now through California Department of Agriculture grant funding, other organizations are able to offer this course in English and Spanish at a cost of $20-30 per person. We encourage you and your growers or farm labor contractors who still need to meet this training requirement to take advantage of these low-cost training opportunities.
