AFIA-NGFA-KSU-HACCP Course ... Oct. 13-16 ... Manhattan, KS

Date Posted: October 13, 2014

Manhattan, KS—As one of the most recognized standards in the agricultural industry, Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) programs implement preventative methods to ensure food safety.

As the feed industry continues to diversify and progress, establishing successful HACCP programs is becoming routine for organizations.

The IGP Institute is partnering with the American Feed Industry Association and the National Grain and Feed Association to host the AFIA-NGFA-KSU-HACCP course on Oct. 13-16, 2014 at the IGP Institute Conference Center.

“The course provides the basic tools for feed millers on how to implement all the principles of HACCP step-by-step,” says Carlos Campabadal, IGP Institute feed manufacturing program specialist and the course manager.

“Participants leave with the knowledge on how to develop a HACCP plan at their facility.”

Throughout the course, participants will investigate feed industry regulations, learn the seven HACCP principles, and explore how to develop and implement an effective HACCP program.

All sectors of the feed industry, including feed mill managers, quality assurance personnel, and ingredient suppliers are encouraged to attend this interactive course.

Former course participant, Catherine Ahmann, Washington State Department of Agriculture feed compliance inspector, enjoyed seeing the different areas of difficulties for each industry and gaining a greater understanding of what they do and how they solve problems.

“The people that do the presentations and the professors that are on-site are extremely well educated and have a great way of conveying their material to the students so that we understand and feel comfortable enough to ask questions,” says Ahmann.

This is just one example of the many partnership trainings offered through the IGP Institute.

In addition to feed manufacturing and grain management, the IGP Institute offers courses in the areas of flour milling and grain processing, and grain marketing and risk management.
