Good Agricultural Collection Practices (GACP) Workshop

November 17 - 18, 2020 
Fredericton Inn

The agricultural sector has been facing challenges to remain competitive and reduce production costs. The Good Agricultural Collection Practices (GACP) program has been adopted as the Quality Assurance / Quality Control lot coding and traceability program of choice for New Brunswick producers to develop their own programs meeting critical requirements to move product to market.

Join us for a 2-day GACP workshop designed with you in mind and find solutions to meet your current challenges, increase productivity and control costs. 

 Why attend? 

·         Learn from a program developed by industry for industry with support from the World Health Organization (WHO), Health Canada, Agriculture and Agri-food Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA)

  • Only certified auditable GACP course, internationally recognized and CFIA verified
  •  Equivalent is mandated by many buyers including all medicinal hemp buyers in the European Union
  •  GACP certification upon successful completion of the program
  •   Discover effective techniques to optimize your operation
  •   Make meaningful in person connections within the industry and networking opportunities

Who should attend? 

  • Woodlot owners and those who collect and want to sell wild harvested fruits, mushrooms and other edibles from our forests.
  • Industrial hemp producers
  • Those who produce and sell specialty agricultural crops such as microgreens, fiddleheads, herbs and spices that do not fall under the major commodity food safety programs.

What will you learn? 

  • Identify the risks in your (operation, farm, business etc.) 
  •  Make a plan on how to avoid many risks and how to manage the risks you can’t avoid
  •  Develop a culture of risk management with all the people you work with
  •   Ensure you have proper traceability to isolate and trace back problems should they arise.
  •  Prove to others what you have done

Many consumers and buyers perceive wild harvested food as unsafe. The GACP program can help you convince your customers otherwise and increase your return.
