On-Farm Food Safety Programs

On-Farm Food Safety (OFFS) programs are the foundation of the “farm–to-fork” food supply chain. In Alberta, most of the OFFS programs are delivered by the provincial or national producer associations. This means that they are owned by the industry and delivered by the industry, not the government. The Alberta government is supportive of an industry-owned process and offers credible, scientific expertise, as needed, to organizations and farmers in support of the OFFS programs.
