Food Safety: Dairy Plant Food Safety

Focused on pathogen-control guidelines and principles, the goal of the Innovation Center’s Food Safety Committee is to develop and encourage industry adoption of a uniform approach to in-plant pathogen control programs. By offering several Dairy Plant Food Safety Workshops each year and providing tools and templates, industry members can gain food safety fundamentals and receive hands-on experience on techniques and standard operating procedures to help dairy plants meet stringent regulations.

An additional offering, Control of Listeria monocytogenes Guidance for the U.S. Dairy Industry, is a self-study guide available from the Innovation Center Food Safety Committee that is a great reference for workshop attendees to share and implement what they learned.
