Managing risk is paramount for fresh produce packers.  This 2.5 day course will seek to provide pertinent information for the control and elimination of foodborne pathogens within the packinghouse.  Come learn from experts in the field about foodborne pathogens of interest for environmental monitoring programs, principles behind hygienic management of packinghouses, hygienic design of equipment, and steps involved with developing, implementing and responding to an environmental monitoring program within your facility.  We have filled this course with opportunities for hands-on experiences to aid in your learning.
