Arizona Leafy Greens’ Food Safety Training Program now available

Just in time for the Southwest’s planting and harvest crew trainings, the Arizona Food Safety Committee (Arizona LGMA) has made all of its training materials available for purchase on the organization’s website.

“We began a process two years ago to make the Food Safety Training Kit (FSTK) available online, in our ongoing quest to make this universal program as flexible and accessible as possible,” said Vicki-Lynne Scott, technical subcommittee chairperson and board member of the Arizona Leafy Greens Food Safety Committee. “With anticipated FSMA standards, employing our practices now can give farmers and harvesters a head start when compliance deadlines come closer.”

The online store offers the entire Food Safety Training Kit for the introductory price of $499, which includes all materials in both English and Spanish (workplace posters, tailgate flip charts, DVDs, training binders, etc.), as well as a la carte pricing for supplemental materials starting at $5.

The entire kit can be purchased with all camera-ready materials on a thumb drive, acquired electronically through a secure web link, or via FedEx shipping.   

The program was developed in collaboration with Sergio Nieto-Montenegro, Ph.D., of El Paso, Texas-based Food Safety Consulting & Training Solutions.
