Decision Making Made Easy!
The purpose of the Decision Trees is to:
- Help you identify risks and practices that reduce risks;
- Prioritize the implementation of practices to use limited resources wisely;
- Familiarize you with the terms and methods necessary to understand and follow requirements and expectations for food safety from buyers, farm markets, schools, and federal regulations.
There is a pdf Glossary in case any terms are unfamiliar.
All of the Decision Trees follow simple 'YES or NO' pathways to aid you in assessing your current practices.
These Decision Trees were developed through a collaborative project between Cornell University, University of Minnesota, and University of Tennessee supported through funding from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), United States Department of Agriculture project number: 2010-51110-21011.
