​Allergen Control and Egg Safety and Handling Workshop

March 7, 2023

4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Location: Online

Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture is sponsoring this online workshop. Farmers who raise or handle allergens (milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, sesame, wheat, and soy) need to be aware of the potential risks and how to minimize cross-contact contamination. This includes fruit and vegetable growers and livestock producers. An allergen control program is an excellent way for producers to ensure a safer product and help protect their businesses from liability. During this workshop, producers can develop custom allergy control programs for their businesses with the help of local food safety expert Sara Runkel of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association.
