17/08/2015: AFIA and 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 autumn. 

The 'Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points Training for the Animal Food Industry' will take place in Des Moines, Iowa on November 10-11, and the 'FAMI-QS Awareness in Feed Safety Program: Solutions for the Specialty Feed and Mixture Industry' will follow in Des Moines in November 12-13.

Each course is limited to only 25 participants. Be sure to reserve your spot today!

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

The early-bird rate for the HACCP course, which runs through October 9, is US$550 for AFIA members and US$650 for non-members. After October 9, registration fees increase by US$100.
