Tomato Guidelines Update: Wash Water & More Webinar

United Fresh Produce Association

Electronic (digital download/no shipping)

Members - $0.00

This is a recording of the United Fresh Webinar Series program that was presented live on October 9, 2018. Learn the key updates to the 3rd version of the Commodity Specific Food Safety Guidelines for the Fresh Tomato Supply Chain, referred to as the Tomato Guidelines, on this webinar. The guidelines apply to each part of the fresh tomato supply chain: outdoor and greenhouse growing, harvesting, field packing, packinghouse operations, repacking, fresh-cut operations through to retail and foodservice. Updated recommendations highlighted on the webinar include aspects of field packing, re-use of cartons, and antimicrobial use and wash water monitoring. Given the evolving research on the quality of water used to wash tomatoes, the second half of the webinar provides details on the wash water recommendations in the guidelines and discuss research currently underway. Because of the unpublished nature of some of the data shared on the webinar, we were not able to record and distribute a portion of the webinar. Please excuse this edit during Dr. Sunny Luo’s discussion. Part of the Food Safety Webinar Series sponsored by Ecolab.
