22/02/2017: Professionals lead food safety training

Industry professionals led a training course over basics of food safety standards 

A course in the Food and Drug Administration’s animal food safety regulatory requirements was held at Kansas State University February 7-9, 2017
 


The NGFA-KSU Food Safety Modernisation Act Feed Industry training course held at the IGP Conference Centre, gave individuals in the animal food industry the opportunity to gain an understanding of the new safety requirements and the necessary elements of an effective animal food safety plan.

The course instructors primarily discussed the fundamentals of animal food safety and provided participants with a framework to develop and implement a plan for animal food safety.

“It doesn’t just cover ‘grain people.’ A lot of the classes that I go to are strictly grain elevator cooperative people; but, when you get to look at something from the standpoint, it really opens your eyes and makes you more rounded with what you’re doing,” says Brandon Dills, course participant and safety and compliance officer at Co-Mark in Cheney, Kansas.

This Food Safety Modernisation Act training had an additional secondary HACCP component that was accredited by the HACCP Alliance.

After successfully completing both of these courses in the program, participants received two certificates and can demonstrate they are a “preventative controls qualified individual” to the FDA.

“I have really enjoyed the instructors in this course,” says Bill Bookout, president of the National Animal Supplement Council from Valley Centre, California.

“You get a concentrated shot of technical information and it’s 8-5 everyday. The instructors are technically competent, but they also good teachers. I would really compliment them in that regard of being able to teach and to effectively communicate so that people understand the subjects being taught.”
