As a new school year starts in many parts of the country, we’re more than likely overdue for those “Back to School” banners to be taken down in the big box stores and be replaced with an onslaught of Halloween products and advertisements. It was a good two months of active marketing, but now it’s time to move on, right? Truthfully, “back to school” is a mindset that doesn’t know a season and doesn’t get pushed aside for fun-size candy bars (as wonderful as they may be).
“Back to school” could be seen as a life-long mantra of continuing education and professional development. In the food industry, if it weren’t for continuing education and training, we would never be able to keep up with consumer, regulatory, food safety and quality demands. That’s why Nelson-Jameson is continuing to work with Cherney College, part of Cherney Microbiological Services, to offer an array of courses targeted at food industry professionals. Cherney College offers courses year-round, addressing topics from basic food safety all the way to advanced food microbiology and FSMA Preventive Controls.
Courses are held in Green Bay, WI; however, some courses and training sessions can actually be held right on site, at your facility, to save time and travel expenses for groups.
Thanks to our partnership, Nelson-Jameson customers get an exclusive 5% discount on all course offerings! Use promo code “Nelson-Jameson” when signing up for any of the courses featured at “cherneymicro.com.”

Staying cool during the summer months can often be a challenge. Keeping employees cool and comfortable during the day is very important.
At Nelson-Jameson, we have many cooling aids to help employees beat the heat in even the hottest food processing facilities. Cooling products include headband/neck wraps, bandanas, hard hat sweatbands, cooling towels, and hat/cap liners. Simply immerse them in cold water for 5-15 minutes, and stay cool all day.
Another option is a cooling vest which features four pockets for cooling inserts. The Feather Ice Inserts are reusable packs that stay cold three times longer than ice.
Look for our Sqwincher™ drink mixes, which provide the optimal combination of fluids and electrolytes to keep your employees hydrated. They are perfect for hot, humid food processing environments.
To learn more, or to order these cooling aids, contact our Customer Service team today or visit nelsonjameson.com.
