The Washington State Tree Fruit Association will offer cleaning and sanitation workshops on ” Putting Cleaning and Sanitation Programs into Practice: a hands-on workshop for sanitation workers and food safety managers”, on July 20th and 21st.
Presented in partnership with the Northwest Horticultural Council and the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission, this workshop is designed to provide insight on best practices related to cleaning and sanitation programs to reduce food safety risks at the packinghouse level, with specific emphasis on Listeria monocytogenes. Hands-on demonstrations will provide sanitation staff with information related to implementing effective cleaning and sanitation strategies. We will also address communication strategies to ensure that food safety principles and priorities are shared between sanitation crews, food safety managers, and upper management.
