HACCP Workshop for Meat, Poultry Processors
Federal guidelines now require HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) programs of all meat and poultry plants. These programs are considered vital to the safety of food products.

A HACCP program is a team effort. And a good team has to be properly trained. University of Georgia food scientists will train teams in providing sound HACCP programs and food safety in a workshop May 14-15 in Athens, Ga.

The training will start at 7:30 a.m. May 14 at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education. It will end at 4:45 p.m. May 15. It's limited to the first 100 to sign up.
