If you are a grocery retailer or restaurant looking for a great products to satisfy your customers - you have come to the right place!
To keep everyone safe with the COVID-19 crisis, the Officers, Board of Directors, and staff have voted to cancel the 2020 SEMA Annual Convention. We have been monitoring the virus outbreaks and the statewide “Stay at Home” orders and agreed it would not be in the best interest of everyone to continue with the convention plans. Safety is the upmost importance for our members. The hotel has agreed to postpone our event until June 2022.
We will be in contact with the members that have already registered for the convention and will be issuing refunds. If you have made your room reservations with the hotel, please call and cancel those with the hotel. We pray for good health to you, your business, and employees.

About this Event
Basic HACCP training is for producers and processors implementing or maintaining a HACCP food safety plan.
This program is designed to provide the attendee with a working knowledge of HACCP and its supporting programs. The information will be presented by certified instructors in short, concise lectures. In addition, within small working groups, the attendees will actually develop a HACCP plan and present it to the class for discussion and critique. Upon successful completion of the course, the attendee will be registered with the International HACCP Alliance and recognized as completing a HACCP training program.
This training is 100% virtual and will take place over Zoom. A PDF of the manual will be provided, although a spiral bound hard copy of the manual can be purchased and shipped domestically, provided the request is made 7 working days before the training starts.
Training will start at 8:00 am both days, the first day will end by 5:00 pm and we will be done the second day by 2:00 pm.
