Western Growers has formed a new Food Safety Advisory Subcommittee (FSAS) to bolster its efforts in solving produce safety challenges.

FSAS members will advise the Food Safety Science and Technology Committee, which reports to the WG’s Board of Directors, while providing technical expertise and advice on science issues and industry regulations affecting the safety of fresh produce. Members of FSAS will be abreast of WG’s key food safety efforts and projects and have the opportunity to provide WG’s Science staff with feedback on these endeavors.

The following 12 WG members will serve on FSAS:

  1. Chair: Jacob Odello, Nunes Company
  2. Co-Chair: Cailin Keaton, Pasquinelli Produce Company
  3. Secretary: Amber Strohauer, Strohauer Farms
