Below are copies of the letters that are being mailed out to both the vendors of Schedule B foods and all of NS farmers’ markets by the NS Dept of Environment (home of Food Safety). Should any questions arise from the letters, your Public Health Officer (often referred to in our sector as Food Safety Inspectors) are fully briefed on the change and can answer questions directly. Below is a complete list of Public Health Officers by region and their contact information.
Reach Keltie at the Farmers’ Markets of NS Cooperative office with any broad questions regarding the change.
