Continuing Food Safety Education through FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food course

The Food Safety Modernization Act is the most extensive change to food safety laws in 70 years, shifting the industry perspective from a reactive to a proactive approach when addressing and preventing food contamination. The new regulations require specified activities to be completed by a “Preventive Controls Qualified Individual” who has “successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls.” The FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food course helps support both compliance with FSMA and provides FDA-recognized training for your designated Preventive Controls Qualified Individual. This standardized course was developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) in partnership with the FDA, and the lead instructors and course content and materials are FSPCA-approved.

The FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food course is a great fit for quality directors, managers, supervisors and practitioners who will be responsible for managing his or her company’s Food Safety Plan under FSMA.  This course will be held March 29th-31st, 2016, at Cherney Microbiological Services in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The cost is $800, but be sure to mention “Nelson Jameson” while registering to receive a 5% discount!  To register, please click HERE.

Nelson-Jameson at Cheese-a-topia!

 Late this August, Nelson-Jameson is hitting the road for the American Cheese Society Conference in Seattle, Washington.  The American Cheese Society (ACS) Conference and Competition is one that gathers together the specialty and artisan cheese industry.  Nelson-Jameson, from its beginning in 1947, has supplied dairies and cheese-makers of all sizes, including many farmstead and artisan cheese makers.  Because of this, we’ll be making our way to the Pacific Northwest to meet with familiar faces and new friends at “Cheese-a-topia.”

Be sure to check out information on the ACS and the Conference/Competition at: http://www.cheesesociety.org.  Numerous sessions, workshops, guest-speakers, and special events like the annual cheese competition are slated for this year’s conference.  If you are coming to Seattle, be sure to stop by our booth!  We would love to see you! We’ll have a whole host of information, new product details, and ideas on how we can efficiently help supply all of your cheese-making needs.
