NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
New Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) Manual is Available
In 2002 JIFSAN produced the first edition of its GAP manual, a training document that has been used extensively worldwide and has been a centerpiece of the JIFSAN GAP training program.
Now JIFSAN offers an updated and enhanced edition of the GAP manual entitled ‘Improving the Safety and Quality of Fresh Fruits and Vegetables: A Training Manual for Trainers’. It is available in English (Spanish translation in progress) and offers a new chapter on pesticides and chemical hazards in addition to chapters on general food safety topics, GAP, GMP, quality assurance, developing effective training programs and food laws and regulations. Practical exercises and a compilation of additional resources complete the text.
