MANHATTAN, Kan. — Kansas State University’s (KSU) IGP Institute and the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) will host a Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) feed industry training Feb. 18 to 20, 2020.

This course will cover topics surrounding the FDA’s current “Current Good Manufacturing Practice and Preventative Controls” rule for animal food; evolution of risk-based food safety preventative controls (HACCP); animal food safety plan; and good manufacturing requirements among other things.

“It was beneficial to learn what we’re doing at our site to make sure we’re meeting all of the regulations to provide safe food to cattle,” said former course student, Eric McMillan, director of commodity and risk management at Cactus Feeders. “I now have the knowledge to help with our food safety plan to help train our employees that are on-site at the feed mill.”

In addition, this course also offers a separate but related HACCP training component. The HACCP training will occur on the final day after the FSMA training concludes and is an optional training but requires additional registration. Successful completion is accredited by the International HACCP Alliance.
