This International HACCP Alliance (IHA) approved 2-day course provides participants with the knowledge and tools to develop and implement a Food Safety Plan. Attendees engage in interactive exercises led by experienced industry professionals and learn to utilize risk-based preventive methods for identifying and controlling potential food safety hazards.
Facility Focus: Risk-based prevention relevant to produce pack-house and cold-storage facilities, including the FSMA sanitary transport requirements, is emphasized. Hazard identification and evaluation utilizes the HACCP method and is compared to FSMA regulatory requirements for the Preventive Controls Rule for Human Foods and Sanitary Transport Rule, and GFSI programs PrimusGFS and SQF.
The training highlights cGMP (21 CFR 117) requirements: personnel, plant and grounds, sanitary operations and sanitary facilities and controls, equipment, and production and process controls. Essential pre-requisite programs such as documentation, traceability and recall, allergen management, food defense, and best practices for sanitary transport are also discussed.
