The Produce Safety Alliance (PSA) is a collaboration between Cornell University, FDA, and USDA to prepare fresh produce growers to meet the regulatory requirements included in the United States Food and Drug Administration’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule.
The Produce Safety Alliance officially launched its training programs in September of 2016 and developed the standardized national produce safety training program to prepare fresh produce growers to meet the requirement in § 112.22(c) that states ‘At least one supervisor or responsible party for your farm must have successfully completed food safety training at least equivalent to that received under standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by the Food and Drug Administration.’ The PSA has developed two types of training courses; a Grower Training Course and a Train-the-Trainer Course.
