Signed into law in 2011, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was developed to ensure the safety of food throughout virtually every facet of the production cycle. MFB has collaborated with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, as well as Michigan State University Extension, to facilitate training for growers across the state on how to effectively and efficiently gain compliance to FSMA standards on their farm.
From small farms to large scale processors, the dates of compliance have started, with farms over $500,000 in annual sales needing to comply as of January 26, 2018. With the investments being made at the state and federal levels, members are interested in the measurable impact, and how the Food and Drug Administration plans to measure the success/impact that FSMA implementation had on making the food we produce and consume safer.
