We Can Help

The Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences is helping produce growers, food processors, and feed manufacturers prepare for new regulatory standards required under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) of 2011. Penn State Extension has taken the lead on these efforts by forming a cross-discipline team of faculty, staff and state-wide Extension educators with expertise in the areas of feed and food safety. Utilizing insights from impacted stakeholders, the team’s goal is to deliver training and other educational resources that will help Pennsylvania’s food and agricultural industry comply, creating a safer food system in the Commonwealth.
