Principles for Establishing Sampling Plans for Ingredients and Finished Products Webinar

Principles for Establishing Sampling Plans for Ingredients and Finished Products

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is bringing forth a new era in food regulatory oversight in which the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will be increasingly scrutinizing the food industry’s use of microbiological sampling plans and ingredient/finished product specifications.  Customers are also looking more closely at supplier sampling programs, but at times may also specify criteria that are not aligned with regulatory requirements or otherwise may not be appropriate for a particular product.    

The time for ensuring your programs are defendable and robust enough to withstand FDA’s and your customers’ scrutiny is now!  Join IDFA and distinguished food microbiologist and industry consultant Jeffrey Kornacki, PhD, for a timely and practical webinar on establishing statistically-sound, science and risk-based microbiological criteria for dairy products. 

Dr. Kornacki has extensive experience consulting and troubleshooting microbiological issues for the food industry, including work with a wide array of dairy products—from cheese to whey powders and beyond.   During this interactive webinar, we will present participants with the microbiological and statistical principles needed for the development of criteria and sampling plans, then describe the processes and steps one should utilize to establish robust programs for both incoming ingredients and finished products.  Participants’ questions can also be fielded by Dr. Kornacki during the Q&A session.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from an industry leader and take your food safety programs to the next level.  Register today!
