FSMA a Year Later: Implementation and Compliance on the Ground
Winemaking Breakout Session
Whether you are a winemaker, a grapegrower, or both, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) applies to your business. Come learn how to keep up with this large body of legislation, and hear about best practices for compliance. Find out about the latest FSMA developments for vineyards and wineries alike.
In this session, you will hear from wineries who have had successful inspection visits and what they did to make sure that they went well. You will also learn what officials have been seeing during inspections and what they’re expecting. Attendees will get an overview of what’s required by FSMA and what portions of the regulations apply to them. Speakers will also touch on some challenging topics like custom crush and alternating proprietorships.
