Dr. David Gombas will be taking part in GAPs, GMPs and HACCP Food Safety for the Fresh Produce Industry Short Course this February 10-12 in Athens, Georgia.
Food safety is critical to all produce industry stakeholders. In addition to being a major public health issue, food safety events, such as foodborne illness outbreaks, can have a severely adverse economic impact on growers, packers and shippers. Based on consumer pressure, many wholesale buyers and major retailers have initiated independent verification programs to certify that the produce they purchase is safe. The implementation of this food safety training on farms, in packing sheds and in other produce operations will allow produce suppliers to continue to competitively market their products.
