WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN OFRR?
OFRRs facilitate a discussion between the grower and educator on the Produce Safety Rule, and allow the grower to walk through their operation and verify whether or not they are meeting the requirements. The information covered during an OFRR is tailored to the growers specific farm, so only relevant sections of the rule are discussed.
At the end of an OFRR, the reviewers will suggest the top 3 ways the farm can improve their food-safety practices, making it easy for growers to prioritize what needs to be done. The primary goal of an OFRR is to leave growers feeling more relaxed, prepared, and confident for a full implementation of FSMA.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
Before signing up, we highly recommend attending a Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training. This will give you a solid foundation of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirements, which will be extremely helpful during your OFRR.
