Write a Food Safety Plan

USDA offers 2 types of GAP audits, the original point based GAP & GHP audit and the newer Harmonized GAP audit. The materials we have developed are aimed at the Harmonized audit requirements. Use the Penn State GAP template, checklists, and logs to start writing your plan. Updated March 2016.
