The WSHA addressed food safety within the legal and production risk management areas through implementation of GRAS2P: Growers Response to Agriculture, Safe, and Sustainable Practices. Project resources were devoted to 1) conducted multi-day training session for 10-20 coaches; 2) coordinated 10-20 coaches to work individually with 200 Washington specialty crop tree fruit growers to evaluate current food safety and sustainability practices, developed an action plan to address any gaps, and facilitated decisions on which corrective actions to implement based on economic and physical constraints; 3) utilized coaches and 3 advisory teams (economic, environment, and education) to review and improve the coach training curriculum; and 4) implemented the revised curriculum to train additional coaches to meet demand as the GRAS2P program expands in breadth and depth throughout the industry the following years. Participating growers were prepared to pass any major third party verification audit at the 85% level.
