ONSITE - CUSTOMIZED TRAINING COURSE AVAILABLE (either 1/2 day or full day depending on your needs):

Food safety training is essential to the success of your company’s food safety management system. It is a requirement for all regulatory and customer driven food safety standards, and a number of food related recalls have identified employee mishandling or unsafe work practices as their cause. This training provided by AFPA can help you to educate your employees while meeting your regulatory and customer requirements. The training covers day to day food safety practices that help to keep food safe, protect consumers, and your brand. The session will review Prerequisite Programs (Preventive Controls or Good Manufacturing Practices) that form the basis of the food safety management system. Training can be further customized to include specific facility rules, procedures or information. For info or 403-201-3657
