Bringing Food Safety to Local Growers

Produce safety is a priority issue for FMI and many member companies, including Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. In order to offer locally grown produce to customers, Wegmans has developed an outreach program to work with farmers on food safety programs. This webinar will discuss how Wegmans solved a food safety and supply chain challenge through community outreach and leadership. Ideas will be shared on how to work with local growers to implement food safety programs, and resources will be identified to help your company work with local produce growers to ensure they have proper food safety programs in place.
