The Ohio State University Fruit and Vegetable Safety Team will be hosting a good agricultural practices (GAPs) class in Athens, Ohio. Common routes of microbial contamination on the produce farm will be discussed during this 3-hour class. Please download and complete the registration form, located under Attachments. Registration will be accepted at the door.
While attendees receive a certificate of participation upon GAPs class completion, attending an Ohio State GAPs class does not mean attendees are 'GAPs Certified'. A third party audit must be performed on the farm in order to receive GAPs certification. For more information about the OSU GAPs class, third party audits, or proposed produce safety regulations, call Lindsey Hoover at 330-202-3555 ext 2918 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
