What is the Food Safety Modernization Act?
Even though we are a small family farm, Edenberry Farm has completed all produce and grower safety training as required by the Food Safety and Modernization Act. Food safety is very important to us!
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is transforming the nation’s food safety system by shifting the focus from responding to foodborne illness to preventing it. Congress enacted FSMA in response to dramatic changes in the global food system and in our understanding of foodborne illness and its consequences, including the realization that preventable foodborne illness is both a significant public health problem and a threat to the economic well-being of the food system.
