Basic HACCP Training for Meat, Poultry, Catfish and other Food Processors - August 8-10, 2017

Registration has closed.


To help Meat, Poultry, and Catfish Proces-sors comply with USDA's "Pathogen Reduc-tion and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP)" regulations, MSU's Depart-ment of Food Science, Nutrition, and Health Promotion is offering a basic HACCP training course.

This basic course is designed for individuals who must have successfully completed a course of instruction in the application of the seven HACCP principles in order to meet USDA requirements. This course includes development of a HACCP plan and record review for a specific product. Individuals who attend and participate in the course will receive a certificate of course completion. Course instructors are certified by the International HACCP Alliance and will follow the stand-ardized training outline for the course. The regulation states that certain functions be conducted by a HACCP trained individual, however, this individual does not have to be an employee of your establishment. The individual could be a consultant you em-ploy to carry out these functions.

While this course is designed to meet the needs of meat, poultry and catfish proces-sors, the basic principles of this workshop are beneficial to all food processors.
