The program, which begins in late April, is comprised of webinars, two in-person trips -- The Washington Conference June 10-12 and The Global Produce & Floral Show October 17-19, virtual seminars, peer connections, and an ongoing mentorship program.
We focus on developing early-to-mid career professionals with less than five years’ experience in produce safety. This exclusive program is limited to 20 participants, and the deadline for applications is April 5.
The cost to participate in the program is $5,995 per person and includes registration and hotel accommodations for The Washington Conference and The Global Show, as well as participation in 10 virtual sessions.
Who Should Participate in The Produce Safety Immersion Program?
Candidates early in their produce safety careers, food safety professionals moving from other food sectors into produce, and members of the produce industry who have recently taken on a food safety role, are encouraged to participate. Participants must be members of the International Fresh Produce Association.
Who Should Mentor?
Three to four highly-skilled produce safety professionals will serve as mentors to the program fellows and will accompany them at each meeting over the course of the year.
