17/11/2016: Industry Professionals Gather for Animal Feed Safety Training

by Eryn Carter

Food Safety Modernisation Act Feed Training Led by Kansas State University’s IGP Institute.

New changes in animal feed regulation resulted in the NGFA-KSU Food Safety Modernisation Act Feed Industry Training course hosted at the IGP Institute Conference Centre.

Cassie Jones, assistant professor at Kansas State University, along with a team of K-State faculty and alumni joined with the National Grain and Feed Association to offer the training to 55 industry professionals November 14-16, 2016.

The preventative controls for animal food training curriculum was developed by K-State in collaboration with faculty from North Carolina State University, with oversight from industry partners and FDA.

Key topics covered in the course included: the applicability of the Preventative Controls for Animal Food rule, the requirements for Current Good Manufacturing Practices, and the items needed in a food safety plan, such as hazard analysis and preventive controls.

“We are very pleased with the outcome of the course. The participants reported the curriculum was helpful for them to understand the Preventive Controls for Animal Food rule of FSMA and applying its requirements to their facilities,” says Jones.

This course was unique compared to other courses where the curriculum is only for certification as a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual, because it also included HACCP training.

Participants gained two certificates of training – one from the Food Safety Preventative Controls Alliance and one from the International HACCP Alliance.

This is just one example of the trainings offered through IGP Institute. In addition to feed manufacturing and grain quality management, IGP offers courses in the areas of grain marketing and risk management and grain processing and flour milling.
