The Retail-Foodservice Food Safety Consortium and Utah State University recently announced two educational workshops on Reduced Oxygen Packaging HACCP scheduled for the state of Texas.
Each workshop is a 1.5 day opportunity for education and training in the specialized processing methods of cook chill, sous vide, and vacuum packaging in retail and foodservice establishments. Regulators, food safety professionals, and operators using or seeking to use ROP processes are the key participants. The workshop is based on the 2009 model US FDA Food Code and includes some instruction in HACCP to meet code requirements.
These workshops are presented by Dr. Brian Nummer, a Food Microbiologist and Extension Specialist from Utah State University and a subject matter expert in ROP and HACCP. He most recently was chair of the Conference for Food Protection Committee on ROP and had a Committee Report and five issues approved at the 2012 CFP conference related to ROP. Dr. Nummer has taught this workshop in many locations across the country and is considered the only readily available ROP Process Authority in the country.
These ROP HACCP workshops are scheduled for:
