Are you a food entrepreneur looking to better understand the state and federal food regulations? Do you need help developing a food safety plan or to practice food safety techniques?  Join UF/IFAS Extension for a one-day workshop on the basics of Preventive Controls for Human Food (PCHF) rule and other relevant food safety regulations on Wednesday, April 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sunshine Kitchen.

This workshop will include activities covering proper cleaning, sanitation and other food safety techniques, practices and principles that are critical in shared-use kitchens and all commercial food processing facilities. User-friendly examples and templates will be provided so attendees leave with the basic components of a food safety plan. This workshop is not a replacement for the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance-Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (FSPCA-PCQI) course. However, it can act as a prerequisite and is meant to benefit food entrepreneurs of all levels.

The cost to attend this workshop is $10 for members of the Sunshine Kitchen and $30 for non-members. To register visit: foodsafetyftpierce4-27-22.eventbrite.com. For more information contact Matt Krug at: [email protected].
