Produce Safety Rule Training and Certification


The FSMA Produce Rule Grower Training will cover a broad swath of produce safety. Topic areas include worker health and hygiene, water quality in pre-harvest and post-harvest environments, crop inputs and wildlife. Much of this training will help reinforce what growers already know and put into practice on their farms. The curriculum is recognized as adequate by the FDA for the training requirement of the Food Safety Moderization Act Produce Safety Rule written in provision 112.22(c).

All MSU Extension trainings are conducted by educators who meet the training requirements for the FSMA Produce Safety Rule. In addition, a Produce Safety Alliance lead trainer is present at all training events.

Individuals who complete the Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training will be eligible to receive a certificate from the Association of Food and Drug Officials.  There is no cost for this program.

Those interested in learning about Good Agricultural Practices (GAP‘s), produce safety, co-management, and the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act Produce Safety Rule are invited to participate.
