Food Safety Regulation Forums in Michigan

Small food processors, producers and food entrepreneurs are invited to participate in a series of forum discussions on Michigan food safety regulations. As the Michigan Food Law is revised, these forums provide an opportunity for small and medium size farm operators and food entrepreneurs to provide input on food safety and how regulations affect them. The forums are hosted by Michigan Food & Farming Systems (MIFFS) with funding from the Michigan Department of Agriculture in order to learn more about perceptions and experiences of food safety regulations and discover if and how regulations have constrained the viability of small food businesses.

Pre-registration is requested. You can register at These forums will take place throughout the month of March at the following locations:  March 2, 2011 from 6 – 8 p.m. at the NEW Center,1100 N.
