Food Safety Requirements for the US: What Growers Need to Know
Tuesday, March 23, 2021 (1pm - 2:30pm US/Eastern)
Produce sold and consumed in the United States must meet US food safety regulatory requirements and customer expectations, regardless of where it was grown or processed. This session recording provides an overview of the main food safety rules that apply to produce, including when companies need to register with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), how to determine if they need to follow the Produce Safety Rule or the Preventive Controls Rule, and a brief summary of each. It will also give insight into the food safety regulatory requirements that affect produce importers—and the consequences through the supply chain, including current and proposed traceability requirements. Finally, the session will contrast regulatory inspections and penalties with 3rd party audits and describe customer requirements beyond regulations.
Price for the recording of this session is $100 for United Fresh members and $150 for United Fresh Non-Members.
