On-Farm Food Safety Program
The On-Farm Food Safety Program (OFFSP) is a national program that is overseen by Turkey Farmers of Canada. It helps Canadian turkey farmers establish and follow a variety of protocols on their farms to ensure that
consumers receive safe, quality turkey products.
The program details specific steps to reduce and control potential food-safety hazards on turkey farms across Canada. It incorporates biosecurity procedures and requires detailed on-farm record keeping and documentation. The BC Turkey Marketing Board audits all registered turkey farmers in BC on a regular basis to ensure compliance with the program.
The OFFSP has passed technical review by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), indicating that it is based on sound science and meets all Canadian regulatory requirements.
