December 13 - December 14

$49

• Description of the workshop: This coaching workshop is offered throughout the country and is intended for Artisan Cheese and Dairy Food Producers who are preparing to create, or are already developing, a Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) compliant, preventive control (PC)-based, food safety plan for their facility. The goal of this workshop is to provide Food Safety Plan review and coaching sessions that guide attendees through each step in development process. Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) lead trainers will be present to review key food safety plan topics and after each section participants will split into groups and develop those sections of their food safety plan with coaching from the trainers.
