Purdue Extension Offers Produce Food Safety Training Across Indiana

Beginning in August, Purdue Extension will offer produce food safety trainings throughout Indiana. The trainings utilize the Produce Safety Alliance (PSA) training curriculum and will be offered at multiple locations across the state.

For produce farms that are covered under the Food Safety Modernization Act Produce Safety Rule, at least one manager or responsible person is required to receive food safety training equivalent to FDA’s standardized curriculum. Completion of a PSA grower training is one way to meet that requirement.

For growers who are not covered by the Produce Safety Rule, the trainings are an excellent introduction to produce food safety and will be useful to those who are beginning to develop a food safety program on their farm, or who want to learn more about this topic.

There are currently 14 confirmed offerings across the state. Classes are from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm local time. Cost is $100. This includes a curriculum manual, certificate of completion, and lunch.  Participants may register for any location at www.SafeProduceIN.com by clicking on the “Get Trained” option. All classes will be posted on the website. Check back often for new offerings that have been added.  Current offerings are:
