Abstract

Local food producers need to be aware and up-to-date on the ways to handle food safely. A pilot workshop was conducted and used as the basis for communicating food safety practices most efficiently.

Key Question

How can we improve salability of food products by local farmers to retail foodservice operations that have concerns about product safety?

Findings

This project raised awareness among Iowa farmers selling food crops to retail foodservices about the importance of documentation of on-farm food safety practices
