The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) are conducting in Costa Rica the Intensive Workshop for Lead Leaders in the Fresh Agriculture Products Safety Norm, where more than 60 professionals from 13 countries from Latin America and the Caribbean participate.
The main objective of this training is to strengthen knowledge of those attending the workshop on topics related to the implementation of the rules of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FMSA).
“The U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act, or “FSMA” effected a paradigm shift in the way the United States approaches its efforts to ensure the safety of our food supply from farm to table, and this workshop focuses its efforts on preventing problems from occurring rather than responding to them after the fact,” said U.S. Ambassador Sharon Day.
