Establishing a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) program is important when it comes to such a diverse agriculture industry. Kansas State University Department of Grain Science and Industry is keeping a tradition alive by partnering with the American Feed Industry
Association and the National Grain and Feed Association to host the AFIA-NGFA-KSU-HACCP course.
Individuals in charge of meeting regulations and management of feed safety and quality control are encouraged to attend. The AFIA-NGFA-KSU-HACCP course focused on feed safety and will be held October 14-17, 2013 at the International Grains Program Conference Center. Throughout the week participants will take a look at the feed-industry regulations, learn the seven HACCP principles, and learn how to develop and implement an effective HACCP program.
“The course provides the basic tools for feed millers and how to implement all the principles of HACCP step-by-step,” says Carlos Campabadal, IGP feed manufacturing program specialist and the course manager. “Participants leave with the right knowledge to develop a HACCP plan at their facility.”
Individuals involved in any sector of the feed industry are encouraged to attend. The course content applies to feed mill managers quality assurance personnel and ingredient suppliers.
