Ottawa, ON – CPMA has partnered with NSF Canada, a division of NSF International and a global leader in the provision of public health and safety risk-based management solutions, to offer online Food Safety, Regulatory and Quality Assurance workshops to CPMA members and non-members, beginning in June. These workshops were originally planned to take place in person, but have now been moved to an online format due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The workshops are specifically targeted toward small, and medium-sized local growers, packers and shippers, however all produce supply chain personnel are welcome and encouraged to attend. The topics covered in the workshops will include food safety principles, an overview of the current regulatory landscape, the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations and an introduction to quality assurance principles.
These engaging workshops will feature interactive exercises, discussions, and opportunities to apply new knowledge gained, including assessing and using the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations, where appropriate, to enhance understanding of produce-specific preventive control plan (PCP) requirements.Source : CPMA
