Small Food Processor Workshop - Athens, Ohio
If you are a small-scale food producer, there is required documentation you will need to complete to be compliant with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This includes documentation of your size exemption as a “qualified facility” and various food safety programs. This workshop is intended for small (< $1 million in sales/year) producers of fermented, canned, and other shelf-stable foods. This one-day course is a hands-on opportunity for processors to develop their food safety documentation in small groups with individual coaching from instructors. Participants are encouraged to bring their existing documentation, if they have it, for review by instructors. Attendees should leave with completed or nearly completed food safety documentation for size exemptions, Good Manufacturing Practices, and Preventive Control Food Safety Plans as relevant.
- Workshop is limited to the first 20 registrants. Additional registrants will be added to a wait list and additional workshops may be scheduled as needed to meet demand.
- Prior food safety training is recommended but not required prior to enrollment.
- Attendees who wish to work on digital versions of their plans are encouraged to bring their own laptops.
The cost to attend is $25 per person. This fee covers instruction, materials, parking, and lunch.
