In anticipation of possible new food safety regulations for on-farm fruit and vegetable producers, a training session has been scheduled for July 13th. Tennessee Department of Agriculture’s Ag Enhancement Program is offering additional cost-share (50% level) in the Producer Diversification Program for upgrade of produce packing facilities, food grade materials for a GAP plan, and restrooms/handwashing facilities for workers. To get the 50% cost-share producers must attend a food safety training (this audit meetings will count) or one of the winter food safety trainings already held.
The session will be at 1 PM in Maury County at UT’s Middle Tennessee Research Center at Spring Hill, 1000 Main Entrance Drive, Spring Hill. Call Richard Groce at (931)375- 5301 for more info.
These meetings are open to everyone. Cornell Food Safety Manuals will be available at these meetings as long as they last.
