Manhattan, KS - The IGP Institute at Kansas State University held an offering of the NGFA–KSU Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Training for the Feed Industry, February 20–22, 2018 in Manhattan, Kansas. 

The course gave individuals in the animal food industry knowledge of the new safety requirements and implement a plan for animal food safety as required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“KSU in partnership with NGFA was able to deliver another successful offering of Food Safety Modernization Act Training for the Feed Industry. 

"This continues to be an important course offering, as successful completion is one way to satisfy the FDA’s requirement for a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual,” says Brandi Miller, associate director and online education and professional development coordinator at the IGP Institute.

The training offered an additional component that is accredited by the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) Alliance. 

The separate HACCP component occurred on the first day of the animal food safety training. 

Upon completion of both courses, participants received two certificates and are able to demonstrate a “preventative controls qualified individual” to the FDA.

The curriculum of the course was developed by the Food Safety Preventative Controls Alliance. 

The topics in the course included the evolution of risk-based food safety preventive controls; current manufacturing practices that work; animal food safety hazards; an overview of the food safety plan; hazard analysis and preventive controls determination; required preventive control management components; process controls; sanitation controls; and supply chain applied controls.

In addition to supporting professional food safety training the IGP Institute also offers training in grain processing and flour milling, grain marketing and risk management, and feed manufacturing and grain quality management.
