The Institute for Food Safety at Cornell University (IFS@CU) takes a comprehensive approach to providing training and conducting applied research to support the food industry, from farm to fork, in reducing foodborne illness risks. The IFS@CU harnesses Cornell’s existing strengths across food production systems in fruits, vegetables, dairy foods, and entrepreneurial support to help growers and processors comply with the demands of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Food Safety Modernization Act. By helping the food industry meet federal regulatory requirements and produce safe products, the IFS@CU will support economic growth across all food sectors in NY including produce, juice, and dairy, allowing for increased production and novel food product development.
This training is for fruit and vegetable growers and others interested in learning about produce safety, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), and co-management of natural resources and food safety. Through the generosity of New York State Department of Ag and Markets, expenses for training materials for New York State growers/attendees are being covered. Read more
