The Reduced Oxygen Packaging (ROP) HACCP workshop is a 1.5 day opportunity for education and training in the specialized processing methods of vacuum packaging, cook chill, and sous vide in retail and foodservice establishments. Regulators, food safety professionals, and operators using or seeking to use ROP processes are the key participants. The workshop is based on the 2009 model US FDA Food Code and includes some instruction in HACCP to meet code requirements. We will discuss the changes made in the 2013 Food Code if it has been released by FDA.
