BOWLING GREEN, Ohio — Do you grow, handle or process fruits and vegetables? Learn what’s best for keeping them safe — and in doing so, protect both your business and the people who eat what you sell — at an upcoming workshop in northwest Ohio.

Ohio State University’s half-day, science-based Produce Safety Education Program goes from 9 a.m.-noon June 4 at the Agricultural Business Enhancement (ABE) Center, 639 S. Dunbridge St., Suite 4, in Bowling Green.

Reducing foodborne illness is the focus. Featured will be the latest recommendations on good handling and agricultural practices plus new details on water issues, soil amendments, traceability and consumer perceptions.

Registration costs $40 and can be paid at the door, or register in advance — guaranteeing both space and informational materials — by downloading a registration form at http://go.osu.edu/DDP and returning it.

Attendance is limited. For more information, call the ABE Center’s Rob McCall, 419-354-6916, or visit the website.
