23 Feb 2012

Having an effective and farm-specific Good Agricultural and Good Handling Practices (GHPs) plan helps minimize the risk of food contamination at the farm and processing levels, and having a traceability plan is one of the most important parts of passing a food safety audit and getting certified. A good traceability plan could mean the difference between a grower having his or her entire farm shut down or having one portion of a field excluded from harvest in the case of a recall.

Learn how to develop field and sub-field level traceability plans to minimize your risk of a food recall to the smallest possible area on your farm at these free upcoming workshops, which will feature an overview of traceability plans and how to write one, as well as a buyer’s and a farmer’s perspective on the importance of product traceback.
