Webinars hosted live every Tuesday in June 2019: June 4, 11, 18, 25
Developing and implementing Food Safety Plans (required under the Food Safety Modernization Act) can be challenging. Knowledge related to the overall food quality assurance system can enhance the development and implementation of Food Safety Plans by food processors. The goal of this webinar series is to connect concepts and components of food quality assurance programs to food safety. The webinars will be hosted live every Tuesday in June 2019 by Dr. Linda Harris, Dr. Erin DiCaprio, and Dr. Luxin Wang from the Department of Food Science and Technology at UC Davis. Four webinars will be presented on topic areas including: (1) Overview of food quality assurance and food safety programs, (2) Quality control programs, (3) Microbiological testing and standards, and (4) Environmental monitoring programs. Participants are encouraged to engage in live discussion with these subject matter experts.
