About the HACCP Workshop

The HACCP workshop will be held at the Quality Inn & Suites Conference Center March 28-30, 2023. The course is designed to review the philosophy and principles of the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point system and to discuss how to implement HACCP in plants.

This HACCP training program is consistent with the intent and scope of the USDA, FSIS regulation. This course is designed for individuals that have little or no knowledge of HACCP and individuals that would like to have a refresher on HACCP and learn of the changes that have taken place in HACCP during the last 2-3 years.

Participants will have the opportunity to write a mock HACCP plan by selecting a working group that best fits their business. Work group options include: fresh ground product; fully cooked solid muscle product; fully cooked sausage product; harvest/slaughter plans; and other (including eggs and all other products).
