Online Training For Food Safety and Marketing of Local Foods
Posted On: March 25, 2009
A South Dakota Cooperative Extension Service Web site offers online training in food safety and marketing strategies for foods that are grown and marketed locally. The training is a self-paced study that provides content along with follow-up questions to assess what participants
have learned. One module addresses critical safe food handling practices from planting to market, and the other concentrates on the organization of a farmers’ market. Anyone interested in learning more about safely growing, producing and harvesting fruits and vegetables and organizing local farmers’ markets can benefit from the information.
