Safe Food Cohort – Portland Area
September 10 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Made Possible By:
OMEP and NW Food Solutions are facilitating a Food Safe Cohort to help small manufacturers comply with the new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) standards that are going into effect in September 2017.
The new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the largest piece of legislation we’ve seen passed in the food and beverage industry since 1938. Changes in food production and an increase in food borne illness are both drivers for the overhaul of the regulations. To achieve compliance, most companies will be reworking their food safety plans, using the new FSMA regulation as a guide.
Northwest Food Solutions and OMEP have created a curriculum intended to help small food processors achieve FSMA compliance. Our goal is to develop a sequenced process to deliver the FSMA standards to our clients.
