General Food Safety (GFS) Training, Cottage Foods and Acidified

Tuesday, April 5, 2022 -
1:30pm - 4:00pm

Producers of acidified foods (salsas, sauces, pickled products, etc.) are highly encouraged to receive training in the specific requirements and procedures for selling these products. The Acidified Canned Foods Training for Farmers’ Market Vendors and the Cottage Food Industries is a workshop designed to teach the basics of food safety and regulations for processing acidified foods in Mississippi. Whether you have a business that you wish to expand, enter new market avenues, or you are just in the planning stages, the ACF Training will be helpful to you. Participants completing the ACF workshop and scoring a satisfactory grade on the exams can then receive the training highly recommended for processors who process and sell acidified canned foods. This training and certificate do not allow you to sell wholesale, at a retail establishment, over the Internet, or mail order. For this, you are required to attend the Better Process Control School training (early summer schedule). A General Farmer’s Market Food Safety Training will also take place after the ACF Course. This training session is highly recommended for all processed food vendors that attend Mississippi Certified Farmers’ Markets or sell at their farm, etc. Links to Associated Websites:
