Nebraska food producers can learn how to protect their product and customers at workshops scheduled throughout the state.

The workshops will help fresh produce growers and farmer's market managers develop their own farm food safety plans.

Workshop topics will help producers improve worker sanitation, harvesting, handling, packaging, storage and transportation.

Organizers say producers with farm food safety plans can stand out in the marketplace and appeal to many customers who perceive this training as an added benefit.

The one-day training sessions will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All training materials and workshop costs are covered by a University of Nebraska training team and a USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant.

Classes are scheduled in Scottsbluff, Ogallala, Kearney and Norfolk.
