The CEA Alliance’s new best practices document Commodity Specific Food Safety Guidelines for Controlled Environment Agriculture Produce Production of Leafy Greens and Herbs will be the focus of the International Fresh Produce Association’s Virtual Town Hall on Wednesday, November 8 at 12:00 Noon Eastern. The Virtual Town Hall is free to all participants.
The document provides guidance in all areas in production of leafy greens, and was developed by the Alliance’s Food Safety Working Group in collaboration with IFPA. The document was developed under the guidance of more than 20 CEA Alliance Food Safety Working Group members. Outside scientific reviewers included a number of government, academic, retail, foodservice and third-party auditors.
Leading the Town Hall will be Tom Stenzel, CEA Alliance Executive Director; Dr. Jennifer McEntire, founder of Food Safety Strategy LLC and former Chief Food Safety and Regulatory Officer of IFPA; and Monica Noble, CEA Alliance Board member and Director of Quality and Safety for 80 Acres.
