Grower Workshop to Focus on CAC’s New Food Safety Manual

  • Dec 06, 2016

In response to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and retailers’ and foodservice customers’ demand for produce that has been certified according to the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the California Avocado Commission (CAC) has modified its food safety program and manual to align with the Primus GFS standard. To assist California avocado growers in becoming GFS certified, the Commission will host food safety grower workshops that provide training on the new CAC Food Safety Manual.

California avocado growers are strongly encouraged to attend the sessions to ensure their fruit meets the preferred standards of buyers. The free workshops will include Spanish translation and will be held as follows:
