This discussion will enable (i) growers and grower representatives to discuss roadblocks they are, currently, encountering as they adapt their practices to meet the new regulations (ii) extension agents and researchers to identify areas where improved communication is needed, and (iii) government stakeholders to identify areas where improved guidance is needed. The round table will foster discussion of these issues from the perspective of growers, and will facilitate substantive conversation between extension agents, grower representatives, and other stakeholders involved in the production of safe food. By providing a forum for government and academic stakeholders to engage with the grower community, this round table will further integrate the IAFP and grower communities. In doing so, it will increase IAFP members’ understanding of grower needs, and, therefore, areas where more research is needed to directly benefit growers. The round table is a prime opportunity to involve developing food safety professionals interested in pre-harvest food safety by providing a forum to interact with the grower community. While there have been multiple round tables discussing challenges surrounding FSMA adoption, few have included small growers or emerging food safety professionals in the conversation.
