November 7-8, 2017
Room 120 FAPC
Register (Visa, MasterCard, Cash or Checks Accepted)

Managers and supervisors of food processing establishments should know how to identify potential risks to food protection in their facilities. They should also be able to encourage food defense awareness in the employees and suppliers of food industry establishments. The Food Defense & Food Fraud Workshop will provide an increased awareness of the threat of intentional contamination of the U.S. food supply. Managers and supervisors will learn about their unique responsibilities in reducing the risk of intentional contamination of the food supply. This course will focus on prevention of, rather than reaction to, intentional contamination.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Review past noteworthy unintentional and intentional foodborne outbreak cases

  • Describe the distinct characteristics and motivations of Aggressors

  • Identify different preventive measures that may be useful in minimizing the risk of all forms of aggressor tactics

  • Describe the roles of regulators in reducing the risk of an attack while interacting with industry

  • Describe the roles of plant management in reducing the risk of an attack while interacting with industry

  • Identify the proper channels to report suspicious activity or an actual event of food terrorism
