Ensuring Food Safety & Traceability

Posted on: January 3rd, 2013 by Stevanus Family Farm No Comments

Linda and I have been involved in the Ontario – OMAFRA sponsored Food Safety & Traceability Initiative  launched in 2011 and completed in December 2012. This summer and fall (2012) we built a new shed to be used for the cleaning, trimming and cooling of our vegetables as they transition from the field to our customer’s doors.    Investments in equipment,  processes and employee training are all elements of this initiative.  The objective is to make sure that we, as producers are making every attempt to provide safe, fresh produce to our customers.. We view this as  a formalization of our existing practices and procedures.
