The Processors’ Food Safety Toolkit is a resource collection to help very small and small processors get started with Preventive Controls for Human Food (PCHF) and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). The website provides authoritative, comprehensive, and actionable resources for processors to understand and comply with federal regulation. It is a curated educational experience, organized by topic and aimed at those who may not have a complete understanding of preventive controls.
Beginning in 2018, experts from both universities and industry identified the need to create a “one stop shop” for food safety that walks processors through the process of understanding the Preventive Controls for Human Food rule. The team the makes up the Northeast Center to Advance Food Safety’s Preventive Controls Working Group collaborated to develop the website, research materials, and catalog over 200 resources.
