Rhode Island's Premier Republican Resource
Thursday, October 19, 2017, Rhode Island Farm Bureau and Rhode Island Agricultural Council, in cooperation with the Rhode Island Division of Agriculture, invite you to attend a meeting on the Produce Safety Rule Portion of FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act). Our date to RSVP has been extended to Tuesday thanks to Newport Vineyards.
The meeting will be held at Newport Vineyards, 909 East Main Rd. (Rte 138). Middletown, RI 02842. A light supper will be served at 6:00 pm and the meeting will begin at 7:00 pm.
There has been a lot of information lately about FSMA, and it can be overwhelming at times. There will be representatives there from RI Division of Ag, RI Department of Health and the University of Rhode Island to help you determine if and when the Produce Safety Rule may apply to you. Handouts clarifying the rule, and a convenient flowchart will also be handed out to help farms determine if the rule applies to them.
Please RSVP to the RI Farm Bureau at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 401-385-3339 no later than October 17 ( extension of RSVP date).
