This training satisfies the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement for covered farms that "at least one supervisor or responsible party" complete "food safety training … recognized as adequate” by FDA (21 C.F.R. §112.22(c)).

Even if your farm is not covered under the Produce Safety Rule, this course canhelp your farm develop a strong food safety culture, a better farm food safety plan, and a more effective operation.
