Monthly webinar series: food safety foundations for value-added and preserved foods

Join food safety and food preservation experts from the University of Minnesota Extension throughout the year to learn how to safely handle and prepare food. Whether you are a grower, operate a food business, or preserve foods for your own use, these monthly educational webinars are for you.

In this series, you will learn about bacteria that can cause foodborne illness, and how to improve food handling practices in your food business or at home so you can prepare safe food.

Then, apply these safe food handling practices to food preservation methods. Each month learn a new skill or sharpen your existing food preservation knowledge. Note: this is not a certificate course for safe food handling or cottage foods.

Webinars are free and open for all to attend. Registration is required. After registering, you will receive the webinar link. Register here:
