Don’t miss the opportunity to attend the next Listeria monocytogenes Intervention & Control Workshop in Fresno and Monterey, California, in September. Western Growers has partnered with United Fresh Produce Association and Produce Marketing Association to offer these two workshops. In addition, the California Fresh Fruit Association is joining the partnership for the Fresno workshop. These workshops have been specifically designed for the produce industry.

During this 1.5 day event, attendees will learn from FDA, academia and industry experts in general sessions on sanitary design, sanitation best practices and environmental monitoring. The agenda includes breakout sessions, panel discussions, case studies and more.

If you're a packinghouse or fresh-cut operation’s quality assurance, food safety, sanitation, production, operations, maintenance and/or engineering staff member, you won't want to miss this event. Seating is limited and Western Growers members qualify for a reduced rate.
