Food Safety Traceability & Recall Workshop

Special Opportunity for Northwest Small Food Processors

Special Opportunity for Northwest Small Food ProcessorsAre you a small food producer feeling overwhelmed or confused by the regulations and mandates of the Food Safety Modernization Act?

Food Safety is an important part of food production. This workshop provides valuable information to food producers about FSMA, traceability and recall processes.

Accurate record keeping is a vital aspect of FSMA with the requirement of being able to retrieve and provide the records to the FDA within 24 hours.

During this workshop you can also learn about an opportunity to participate in a pilot project for a Food Safety Record Readiness (FSRR) Mobile Solution Application (App) being developed through OSU.

This mobile app solution is being designed to facilitate efficient record keeping, improved traceability plus prompt, accurate document retrieval for small specialty crop food processors in the PNW. Accurate records are vital for mock recall practice or even real-time recalls that might occur.

Contact Catherine Haye for a copy of the flyer about the project opportunity.

Tickets are $50 per person.

The traceability workshop meets on Friday, June 21st, from 8:00am – 12:00pm at the Food Innovation Center.
