OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma State University's Robert M. Kerr Food & Agricultural Products Center and the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry are partnering to provide food safety training for small farms and businesses.
This one-day training is designed for small fruit and vegetable producers and processors, dairies and milk processors, shell egg producers and feed manufacturers. It will provide necessary knowledge of preventive controls and food security to assist producers in meeting the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act.
Four locations are set with the first kicking off on Feb. 5 in Wayne. The other locations include March 5 in Enid, April 9 in Shawnee and May 7 in Okmulgee.
Topics covered include pathogens of concern to the food and feed chains, written food safety plans and principles in sanitation.
