Join CCE educators for a day long workshop on Day 1 delving into what is required to pass a GAPs audit, including worker hygiene, wash/pack sanitation, water quality, record keeping, and more. On the second day, we will split into small groups on Zoom to discuss the different parts of a farm food safety plan required for GAPs, some schools and other buyers, and recommended for FSMA. Educators will be accompanied by NYS Dept. of Agriculture and Markets representatives on Day 2 to help address questions on audits from participants. Participants will work on their plans concurrently within their groups and will have ample opportunity to ask questions and seek advice.
Previous attendance at a GAPs or Produce Alliance Grower Training course, as well as access to a computer with Microsoft Word or familiarity with using Google docs is required for Day 2 participation. Additionally, a microphone is recommended to facilitate interaction with instructors during plan writing on Day 2.
