MANHATTAN, KANSAS, U.S. — Thirty-four individuals from the animal feed and ingredient industry attended the Establishing a HACCP Program for the Feed Industry course at the IGP Institute conference center, June 8-11. The course was held in conjunction with the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA).

The AFIA-NGFA-KSU-HACCP course focused on understanding feed industry regulations, seven steps of HACCP principles, and how to develop and implement an effective HACCP program. Participants listened to presentations from industry experts and also learned from each other.

“The course provides the basic tools for feed millers on how to implement all the principles of HACCP step-by-step,” said Carlos Campabadal, IGP Institute feed manufacturing program specialist and the course manager. “Participants leave with the knowledge on how to develop a HACCP plan at their facility.”

Course participants also gained knowledge through simple interactions with each other and the presenters, which laid the foundation for valuable networking opportunities.

“The training was very informative and I especially appreciated the time spent during the work sessions and the time given one on one to help with each participant,” said one of the participants.
