05/02/2015: AFIA/Eurofins Partner for HACCP and Feed Safety Courses

The American Feed Industry Association and Eurofins have announced plans to jointly host two back-to-back animal feed programs this spring. The 'Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points Training for the Animal Food Industry' will take place in Des Moines, Iowa, April 21-22, and the 'FAMI-QS Awareness in Feed Safety Program: Solutions for the Specialty Feed and Mixture Industry' will take place in Des Moines, April 23-24.

"Both courses address fundamental components to being in compliance with animal feed regulations and how to produce safe, quality feed," said Henry Turlington, AFIA director of quality and manufacturing regulatory affairs. 


"The small class size [25 people] allows for conversational instruction during the two seminars."

The interactive HACCP course will focus on developing and implementing an animal food safety plan based on the principles of HACCP. Eurofins training is based on the Codex Alimentarius HACCP guidelines, which formed the foundation for future Global Food Safety Initiative approved safety schemes.
