Western Growers’ members are invited to learn about the latest produce food safety research findings during the 2018 Center for Produce Safety (CPS) Symposium on June 19 - 20 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Produce industry leaders, government officials and food safety research scientists will gather to learn about topics such as irrigation water advancements; identifying surrogates for human pathogens that can be used to validate the efficacy of preventive controls; implementing science-based preventive controls that minimize contamination risks; and more.

Additionally, there will be Lightening Sessions where CPS will preview research programs that are in their initial stage of development. Leading investigators will speak about research objectives, preliminary findings and where the research is headed next. Click here for full program details.
