Send Your Team to IDFA's Spring Training This Year

Feb 13, 2013

IDFA is offering a robust roster of spring training opportunities to allow new employees to develop the skills they need and invite seasoned professionals to further hone their skills and expertise. There are spaces still available in the February and March webinars, conferences and workshops, and we're holding a spot just for you.

Food Safety Modernization Act: Preventive Controls Rule Webinar

IDFA will host a new webinar on the Food and Drug Administration’s proposed Preventative Controls Rule on February 20, 1:00-4:00 p.m. Eastern time. The webinar will help dairy professionals better understand what the rule means to the industry and how it will affect the way plants operate. This is the first major rule under the new Food Safety Modernization Act.  Sponsored by Invensys Systems Management, the webinar is free, but registration is required.

Ice Cream Technology Conference

IDFA is adding several new sessions – including the two-part “Chocolate Academy” and a “Mystery Basket” challenge – to its popular Ice Cream Technology Conference, which will be held March 12-13 in St. Petersburg, Fla. This premier event for ice cream and frozen dessert professionals is the only meeting that focuses specifically on frozen dessert research, technology, new market trends and opportunities.

Milk Procurement Workshop

IDFA's Milk Procurement Workshop provides a hands-on overview of milk price regulations.  This two-day workshop, to be held March 20-21 Rosemont, Ill., is designed for dairy industry professionals who need to know how these complicated regulations affect their business. Milk processors, cheesemakers, frozen dessert marketers, butter manufacturers, nonfat dry milk manufacturers and others working in the dairy industry are invited to register.

Dairy Plant Food Safety Workshop

Hosted by Land O’Lakes, the second Dairy Plant Food Safety Workshop to be offered this year is scheduled for March 26-27 in Minneapolis. The workshop, co-sponsored by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy and IDFA, will cover dairy-related food safety outbreaks, pathogen control, equipment design and more. It will provide practical information about procedures and skills used to control pathogens in dairy plants.

Send your team to one of IDFA’s educational programs this spring. For more information, contact Maria Velasco, IDFA meetings assistant, at or (202) 220-3524.
