Produce Safety Technician Program
Michigan is unique in that it is the only State to offer a Produce Safety Technician Program to it's farmers and produce producers. This program offers a variety of services to producers, all with a goal of helping to grow tasty and safe to eat produce.
This program is entirely voluntary. The Michigan On Farm Produce Safety Program is non-regulatory, free of cost, and confidential. Your district Produce Safety Technician will work with you to improve produce safety practices, prepare producers for future inspections, and give one-on-one support for produce management.
Other services include:
Produce Safety Risk Assessments
On-Farm Readiness Review so farmers feel prepared to implement the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
Action Plan Development
Wash Pack Consultations
Microbial Risk Mitigation
For more information, or to schedule a service, please contact our local Produce Safety Technician.
