The Troubleshooting Shelf Life workshop takes place Jan. 10 in Lacombe and April 11 in Airdrie.
The workshop is aimed at producers who sell at farmers markets or directly to consumers and “who want to understand food quality issues and how to determine the shelf life of food products.”
Topics include defining what food quality is; the difference between food quality and safety; shelf life; and how to buy and use hand-held testing equipment. Speakers include Linda Ho of CanBiocin, a University of Alberta spinoff that markets a bio-preservative.
