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.

The New Word in Lab Supply: Lab∙alog™

Nelson-Jameson-FINAL-2For our blog readers, a bit of special preview this week! Nelson-Jameson is proud to announce the release of our first area-specific catalog! In mid-April, keep an eye out for our appropriately named catalog focusing on the Food and Beverage Laboratory: Nelson-Jameson’s Lab∙alog™.

The catalog took roots thanks to our customers’ suggestions that they would appreciate us putting together a catalog that specifically addressed laboratory needs within an operation. It is no secret that our general catalog’s spine becomes more and more stressed with each edition by the sheer weight of the hundreds of pages of products! This will be a way to reach out to a specific set of customer needs in a new, streamlined fashion.

We have brought together an excellent array of products that customers focused on food safety and QA/QC are looking for on a daily basis. The process has also allowed us to fine tune our offerings and highlight products that are in demand in this new era of food safety regulation. Special features, like a color insert featuring 3M Food Safety products, easy to reference product headings, and other useful tools are set to be part of the finished product that should bring everything together nicely into an impressive final package. Stay tuned for further news!
