AIB International will hold a Food Safety and Sanitation for Petfood Manufacturers course, November 8-10, at the company's Manhattan, Kansas, USA, facilities.
The petfood safety course allows participants to gain an understanding of legal requirements as a result of the Food Safety Modernization Act and Reportable Food Registry; recognize prerequisites necessary to comply with Good Manufacturing Practice guidelines; develop and implement HACCP food safety programs; identify and evaluate control methods for pests; recognize types of foreign material contamination, and equipment and methods for control of such contaminants; and identify microbiological issues relevant to a petfood facility.
The course is aimed at pet industry professionals, including plant, quality assurance, product safety and maintenance managers. Those interested in attending may obtain more information and register online.
