MANHATTAN, KANSAS, U.S. – Remaining up to date on operating procedures is a key component in the grain industry to ensure the safety and quality of food products. Attended by 10 industry professionals, the FSPCA Preventative Controls for Human Food and HACCP Integration for FSMA Compliance training was held Nov. 7-9, at the Kansas State University (KSU) IGP Institute Conference Center.

The training consisted of exploring important elements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point).

“Cornelius Hugo did a wonderful job teaching the curriculum and relating it to the milling industry,” said Brandi Miller, IGP Institute associate director. “By successfully completing the course, participants met the requirements to be certified as a PCQI (Preventative Controls Qualified Individual).”
