Improvements to Fresh Pack Lines for Quality and Food Safety

February 8 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Producing and marketing fresh-pack wild blueberries has numerous challenges including the use of specialized equipment, limited time for product harvest and processing, and issues of shelf-life and shrinkage, just to name a few. Hear from two growers and one food scientist (Dr. Jen Perry) about some of the common as well as uncommon management practices, equipment usage, food safety SOPs and other practical knowledge of getting fresh wild blueberries to market.

All sessions start a 4:00 pm and could run for 1 or 2 hours depending on discussion back and forth.

The login link and password are the same for all sessions. This information will be sent to you once you register online or call Mary to register over the phone at 207.581.3175.
