The "Train the Trainers" Food Safety Workshops prepare participants to train harvest workers on recommended food safety practices. The Workshops are Free but require registration.
Food safety has become a critical priority for agriculture producers. For Oregon growers, it is important that consumers trust that their produce is universally safe to eat. Because of this, the Oregon Berry Commissions applied for and received a Specialty Crop Block Grant to help educate farmers on how to prevent on-farm microbial contamination of Oregon produce.
Take advantage of this 3-hour program providing food safety training based on the California Strawberry Commission Food Safety Practices for Harvest Workers™ flip chart study guide. The flip chart will be provided to everyone who attends at no charge and is intended to be taken back to the farm to be used by growers and field supervisors to train harvest workers on recommended food safety practices.
