Small Supplier Project

The Show Me Food Safety Small Supplier Project is aimed at small farmers and manufacturers that are trying to increase the food safety at their facilities, but do not have the resources to do so. Show Me Food Safety will donate resources such as consultation visits, monetary items, equipment, free training, etc. to sites that meet the criteria set forth by Show Me Food Safety. Sites will fill out an application to give background on their company and to demonstrate why their site deserves the donation.
