IGP Institute to offer HACCP training

Course a partnership with American Feed Industry Association, National Grain and Feed Association

The IGP Institute will partner with the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) to conduct the annual HACCP training in October.

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 course will be held Oct. 13-16 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.

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. To learn more about the training opportunities at the IGP Institute visit www.grains.k-state.edu/igp.
