K-State Research & Extension will provide GAPs certification training and food safety plan development assistance in upcoming one-day workshop. This training should help your farm successfully complete a USDA Harmonized GAPs audit and will assist you in creating a food safety plan.

Please note that this workshop will not meet the training requirements of the FDA-regulated Food Safety Modernization Act Produce Safety Rule.

The workshop will be taught by Cal Jamerson, KSU Produce Safety Extension Associate who has extensive first hand experience getting his family farm USDA GAP certified four times. Cal will be providing his food safety plan and logbooks that have been passing USDA GAP audits. You will be able to customize his plan to your operation, allowing you to create an audit-ready food safety plan. The morning session will review the GAP audit process (costs, who to contact, what to expect), with the remainder of the day spent creating your food safety plan. If you own a laptop please feel free to bring it along to aid in writing the Food Safety plan.
