This Webinar presented by SGS, Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership (WMEP) and Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center (IMEC) explores the challenges faced by small and medium sized food processors. Global, federal and state food safety regulations can be incredibly confusing for these manufacturers. What qualifications do I need? Which regulations apply to me? How do I implement changes? Where do I start? These are common questions that are received from small manufacturers. The key is to understanding food safety and creating a culture where food safety is automatic. This webinar will cover the training and requirements need to create a food safety culture in your processing facility.
