Agricultural entrepreneurs who want to produce specific foods in their on-farm kitchens can receive food safety training and become certified under Delaware law at an upcoming workshop jointly sponsored by the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension and the Delaware Department of Agriculture.
The two-part program by Dr. Sue Snider will take place next month at the DDA Offices in Camden. Sessions will be March 19 and 26, both from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The registration deadline is March 12.
Participants will learn how to identify potentially hazardous and non-potentially hazardous foods; understand foodborne pathogens and ways to control them; reduce the risk of foodborne illness; evaluate their plan for controlling potential microbial problems; and understand state regulations on farm-produced, non-potentially hazardous food items.
To register for the training, you should call Debbie Whitmore at 698.4540.
