The Results

Attendees received training, templates, resources and tools to enable them to document their food safety program and to train their employees. They learned how to implement a food safety program at their company and how to create and implement a Food Safety Plan in compliance with the FSMA Final Rule for Preventive Controls for Human Food.

A key element of the cohorts was the check-ins between sessions. This allowed for customized, individualized support as companies face the challenges inherent in implementing change.

We have saved time and dollars by having a Food Safety Plan and are prepared for any future recalls of any of our products. This information is invaluable and priceless.
