Michelle and Chris talk to Dr. Betsy Bihn and Chris Callahan, PE around challenges and opportunities in the produce industry related to cleaning and sanitizing, good manufacturing practices (GMPs), and hygienic design of equipment. There’s a discussion about an additional group in need of education on this topic, the equipment manufacturing industry. Advances forward will require collaboration and communication between many groups including growers, postharvest researchers, food safety specialists, and manufacturers, to address the challenges that are unique to the produce industry.

These podcasts address water, cleaning, and sanitation issues beyond that expressly covered in the Rule. This series of podcasts has been developed, with help and support from NASDA, FDA, and AFDO, to explore the educational content originally scheduled for the Produce Safety Consortium Educator’s Pre-meeting workshop.
