HACCP/Food Safety Plans/SQF

Accredited Basic HACCP Training Course 

This workshop is designed to provide comprehensive instruction on the development of HACCP based food safety programs for dairy operations that should apply to juice and other foods as well. It will provide practical information, forms and exercises designed to enhance HACCP and other food safety systems.  Throughout the course, you will learn the relationship of traditional HACCP concepts with the  Preventative Controls for Human Food rule under FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

For Grade “A” Dairy processors, this course will meet the core training requirements of the NCIMS Voluntary HACCP Program for dairy plants. FDA Juice HACCP compliance requirements applicable to dairy operations that process juice will also be covered. Successful completion of this workshop should provide attendees with the tools necessary to build new or update outdated HACCP/Food Safety Programs that will meet NCIMS and FDA Juice HACCP requirements. It should also serve as a foundation for the Global Food Safety Initiative’s 3rd party certification schemes such as SQF, BRC & FSSC 22000. SQF examples will be provided.
