Participants spend one-half day learning about food safety prerequisite programs, which are used to ensure food products are free from nonhazardous objectionable contaminants. This includes good manufacturing practices, which are required by both state and federal food regulators. The other half of the workshop will focus on HACCP, or Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points, a system utilized to prevent significant health threatening food hazards.
