Idaho Food Safety Cooperative Begins in Early February 2020

Create a Food Safety Plan that puts you in compliance with the regulations of the Food Safety Modernization Act. FREE OF CHARGE!

Founded in 2019, the Idaho Food Safety Cooperative (IFSC) Program (IFSC) provides small food processors (< 500 employees) everything needed to create a Food Safety Plan that puts them in compliance with regulations of the Food Safety Modernization Act.

TechHelp’s first IFSC cohort completed training on October 29 in Boise and participants gave the program and instructors, Catherine Cantley and Janna Hamlett, 5 Stars! TechHelp is currently recruiting cohorts of small food manufacturers to participate in our 2020  IFSC courses in Idaho Falls, Twin Falls, and Boise beginning in early February.

Above, Catherine Cantley (L) and Janna Hamlett (R) of TechHelp and the University of Idaho engage with the first cohort of small food processors during the 2019 IFSC program at Boise State.

“We were able to work on our actual Food Safety Plans during class and break things up into manageable pieces.  Great information and templates provided to make the plan easy to write.”

James Hottenroth of Doma Coffe in Post Falls, ID
