Assuring safety of produce and the wellbeing of consumers and their loved ones is of the utmost importance to the produce industry. That's why PMA has been so committed to help make possible the research work funded by the Center for Produce Safety over the last decade. The entire produce supply chain continues to move toward ever more stringent market-driven produce safety standards. In order to make sure your food safety program protects consumers and your business effectively, it is important to stay current on the latest produce safety research. As such, PMA's Dr. Bob Whitaker and Dr. Jim Gorny shared their insights on over 30 research projects featured at the eighth annual Center for Produce Safety Research Symposium, held on June 20-21, 2017 in Denver, CO.
This review of CPS research featured discussion of the latest research on assuring microbial quality and safety of agricultural water, soil amendments, produce wash water systems, and other hot topics. The key findings from numerous presentations are highlighted and discussed in light of their significance to help you understand how to use this information to enhance produce safety programs in your business.
