The school, which covers the critical factors supervisors must know in these canning processes, will be March 7-10 at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education.
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.
