Description

It is important for buyers of fresh, whole produce to have assurances that safe food handling practices were followed on the farm and during delivery to their facilities. Growers can provide documentation of food safety assurances through a buyer’s onsite review of their farm, a certificate of attendance at good agricultural practices (GAPs) trainings or Produce Safety Alliance (PSA) workshops, or with documentation from a third-party audit.
