Food safety regulations for producers

Find all the information you need on ISU Extension and Outreach’s Food Safety website. There you can find resources for consumers (safe food preparation and conservation tips and videos), food service providers (find posters, brochures, links to workshops and certification programs), and producers (links to resources, contacts and guides to creating food safety plans).

The Iowa Safe Produce website maintained by the ISU Safe Produce Team offers workshops and resources for the FSMA Produce Safety Rule and Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs).

ISU also offers online food safety trainings for producers to meet GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) standards for selling food to the public, including farmers markets, CSAs, food service and other institutional markets.
