BOISE, Idaho-New government regulations are on the horizon, and market requirements may eventually require all processors to implement one of many Global Food Safety Initiative Standards. For companies wanting to take their food safety and HACCP programs to the next level of management, the University of Idaho Extension, School of Food Science and TechHelp are offering a three-day workshop March 22-24 at the DoubleTree Hotel Boise Riverside in Boise.

The Northwest GFSI Standards Workshop offers specialty crop teams a chance to learn about these complex standards in a way that is simple and straight forward. During presentations, interactive exercises will be deployed to enhance learning. After this training, attendees will be able to begin implementing one of the GFSI standards for facilities.

Nationally recognized speakers break down the knowledge into three levels of participation: Overview level (participate for one day), Core Knowledge (participate for two days) and Practitioner level (participate for three levels).
