Is Your Company Ready to Comply with New FSMA Requirements?
The new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) establishes new requirements on food and beverage manufacturers, processors and suppliers of all sizes. These new requirements include specific training of employees and implementation of new food safety standards. Companies with revenues greater than $1 million are required to comply by September 2017, with smaller companies following 1 year later. This will take significant focus and effort on the part of manufacturers.
What does it Take For Your Company To Become Compliant?
Our team recently presented a webinar on becoming compliant with FSMA. We have recorded it to share the knowledge and insights with you. You can view the webinar here. The Password is FSMA2017a

Join a Safe Food Cohort
OMEP and Northwest Food Solutions are teaming up with The City of Eugene, Lane Workforce Partnership, and the Prosper Portland (formerly Portland Development Commission) to bring you the Safe Food Cohort.
This hands-on learning series is designed to help your company comply with the new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements. With over 30 years of combined experience in the food and beverage processing industry, we know what it takes to get your company in compliance, and which new regulations apply to your company.
The cohort model will allow reduced cost per participating company, allows you to achieve compliance with the programs and processes to operate at a high level of safety. This will set a foundation for growth with significantly lower regulatory risk and liability.
We are actively seeking companies to attend the Portland FSMA Cohort. To ask questions or apply, download the application below and email to Jagnor@omep.org
Companies are Saying:
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is something that we recognize as a good thing; however, our resources are limited compared to resources available to much larger companies. Without assistance, we will be negatively impacted in complying with FSMA. We will have to make a choice between plowing profits back into our company to nurture further growth, with a consequent increase in our employee base, or sacrificing growth simply to survive and comply with FSMA. I know that was not the intention when FSMA was passed, but it is one of its practical consequences. OMEP is offering something of great value by developing and offering the cohort based FSMA training they propose. – Brad Averill, Owner – Wildtime Foods
