The Michigan’s Produce Safety Risk Assessment is a voluntary and confidential produce safety program used as a resource for farms growing produce. Completing the Michigan Produce Safety Risk Assessment is a way for farms to be confident that their practices are consistent with the current U.S. Food and Drug Administration Produce Safety Rule. Food Safety is an important concern that needs to be addressed on all produce farms. Whether a farm is a small family farm or a big corporate farm, using good production, harvest and post-harvest management practices will help prevent contaminated produce and ensure the wellness of customers. That in return will also help ensure the success of the farm.

According to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, at least one responsible person on a farm must have completed food safety training that has been recognized as an adequate training by the Food and Drug Administration. There is multiple grower produce training sessions planned across Michigan for Winter and Spring 2019.

Pre-registration is required for the training sessions. For more information and to register go to:
