Food and Beverage
Food, beverage, and ingredient manufacturers’ make-up a large portion of the manufacturing workforce in the United States. Food safety has to be integral part of your business no matter how big your company as a food and beverage manufacturer. Food and Beverage Wisconsin’s (FaB) website states that recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show about 3,000 deaths from foodborne diseases. These deaths are largely preventable through a better understanding of Industrial Food Hygiene and Safety.
Food and beverage manufacturers need to learn about the recent Food Safety Modernization Act (FMSA) regulations. Often this information is hard to assimilate in a manner that the manufacturing workforce can use it proactively. Also, there are some many regulations that it becomes hard to prioritize these in a manner that produces best practices.
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Continuing Education is launching a Certificate in Food Safety that will organize the information in manner that is best suited for industry professionals. Your organization will benefit by sending food safety specialists, technicians, and managers. Directors and supervisors of Food Safety will benefit by seeing practical best practices used in the industry. These continuing education programs will be taught by practitioners who have many years of experience in this subject matter. They can articulate the information in a manner that will make it easy to implement best practices within their own organization.
