These supervisors must pass rigid guidelines in "better process control" schools. To make sure the foods are safe, the schools must cover all of the critical factors supervisors must know in these canning processes.
The University of Georgia's Better Process Control School will be March 6-9 at the UGA Center for Continuing Education in Athens. The school is sponsored by the UGA Department of Food Science and Technology and the Food Process Research and Development Laboratory.
The $500 fee covers training materials, supplies, refreshment breaks, three lunches, tuition and certificates. Preregistration is required.
To learn more about the school, or to sign up, contact Marian Wendinger at (706) 542-2574.
