In-Person Food Safety Training

Are you a fruit and vegetable grower in need of in-person training to meet the Food Safety Modernization Act requirements? In order to be certified to sell your produce into the marketplace, you must have at least one supervisor who has successfully completed a food safety training recognized by the Food and Drug Administration.

As the Native American Tribal Center for Food Safety Outreach, Education, Training and Technical Assistance, our staff at IFAI can provide this training to you free of charge if we receive a minimum of ten growers registered to attend. To request a training in your area, please reach out to Blake Jackson at
