Oregon State University Food Safety Extension and Research Faculty teamed up with Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) to learn more about the On-Farm Readiness Review (OFRR) initiative, intended to provide assistance to Oregon farms that are covered under FSMA Produce Safety Rule.
Five extension and research food safety personnel from OSU (Jovana Kovacevic, Joy Waite-Cusic, Sara Runkel, Stuart Reitz, Luisa Santamaria) participated in OFRR training from May 15 to 17, 2018 along with food safety extension, FDA and state government representatives from Alaska, California, Indiana, Montana, and Washington.
