Learn how to properly clean and sanitize a packing facility using data and proven methods

Cleaning and sanitation are the main pillars of a proper food safety program. But it’s rare to find a manager who has been trained on optimal procedures, tools and chemicals necessary to effectively clean, sanitize, swab and regularly dismantle equipment in a packing facility.

During this workshop, participants will review equipment and facility sanitation and monitoring techniques with hands-on examples and breakout session exercises in a working packing facility. These effective practices will help managers gain a deeper understanding of how to combat contamination using thoughtful and data-driven approaches.

The workshop will run from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM over two days. Light breakfast, snacks and lunch will be served each day.
