Food Defense Management Workshop
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 | 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Food defense is one of the primary, new requirements under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). One of the main requirements is for food facilities to have a food defense plan. Companies are being challenged each day with new opportunities to better protect their assets, their employees, products and all their stakeholders. FDA expectations for higher security at food companies across the nation are rising. A company's survival could depend on how prepared they are to prevent and respond when disaster strikes.
