Pre-Conference Food Safety Workshop

Wednesday, July 10th

Where Are You in the Food Safety Journey? 

  1. I’m living the food safety life, but could always use good company for a refresher.
  2. I’ve begun down the food safety path but could use advice with the directions.
  3. I’m not even sure I’m on the food safety map, can someone help me read it?

 Good news—regardless of your answer, this workshop is for you! Whether you already have, are currently developing, or are just preparing to create, a Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)-compliant, preventive control (PC)-based, food safety plan for your facility, this full-day workshop will get you across the finish line. 

The workshop is structured to provide an overview of the basic concepts of the food safety plan: preliminary documentation, hazard analysis, and preventive controls (process, allergen, sanitation, and supply chain). Experts will provide coaching and facility discussions to help you gain a deeper understanding of these food safety plan fundamentals.  The coaches all have Preventive Control Qualified Individual (PCQI) experience and are on hand to answer questions and to help you deep dive into your food safety plan.  If you have a food safety plan or parts of one, you are strongly encouraged to bring it along for discussion. The class is limited to 40 participants to ensure that coaches can work directly with producers. Lunch will be provided. For more information here or send an email.
