Food safety affects us all, and in our daily lives we naturally want to avoid food that puts our health at risk. Regardless of the size of your farming operation, the use of Good Agricultural Practices is highly recommended to reduce the risk of foodborne illness AND increase efficiency and productivity of your operation. Using good production, harvest and post harvest management practices will keep disease- causing organisms and other contaminants off your produce.
Many groceries and wholesale buyers may require a food safety plan and farm audit but even if your customers do not require this, it is in your best interest to demonstrate that your farming operation utilizes safe food practices.
With a FREE Risk Assessment from our team, we can guide you and your team through the process of identifying risks particular to their operation, developing appropriate solutions, implementing good agricultural practices and developing a farm food safety plan.
The completion of a risk assessment will help you prepare for a certified food safety farm audit. The risk assessment is only a voluntary review of your farming practices and is not the same as a certified audit.
