Event Details

Building a World Class Food Safety Program

A robust Food Safety program is an essential business component for all processors today.  Staying abreast of changes in legislation, adhering to proper food handling, sanitation and pest control, and nurturing a culture that understands, engages and continually seeks improvement on current practices is all part of the broader picture of developing an enduring World Class Food Safety Program. 

With the opportunity to learn from peer experiences in mind, we are particularly pleased to have representation from Maple Lodge Farms and our Host, Skjodt-Barrett Foods, joining us to share insights, experiences, and thoughts on the evolvement and ongoing improvement of their Food Safety Programs.  We hope this Event will help you determine how you may enhance your internal initiatives relating to this fundamental element of our businesses!

We hope you can join your industry peers and fellow EMC Members, as we learn what it takes to build a World-Class Food Safety Program!
