Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association

Growing a healthy United States through our food safety programs.

Food Safety Training

Food safety is an important component of the food chain in today’s society. And Wisconsin’s potato and vegetable growers are committed to practicing the highest food safety standards. That’s why we at the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association offer the necessary training for Wisconsin’s growers to stay ahead of the curve.

By attending our training sessions, not only do growers stay up to date on new requirements, but they also become familiar with the audit schemes and how to prepare for them on an annual basis.
