Meat Association Conference Set at UGA
Food safety is on shoppers' minds more than ever. So the American Meat Science Association has scheduled a training for meat and poultry processors Nov. 29-30 in Athens, Ga.

"Improving Your Sanitation Program" will begin at 7:45 a.m. Nov. 29 at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education. It will offer two full days of timely classes in a comprehensive course developed with help from University of Georgia and Virginia Tech food scientists.

To process food products of the highest quality possible, the course will address the:

  • Microbiology of sanitation.
  • Costs of spoilage.
  • Danger of food-borne hazards and emerging pathogens.
  • Roles of engineering, plant layout, construction materials, refrigeration and ventilation.
A $395 fee covers materials, luncheons, a reception and refreshment breaks. To learn more, contact your UGA Extension Service county office. Or call Estes Reynolds at (706) 542-2574 or Norman Marriott at (540) 231-7640.
