About the Event
Every day, RTE manufacturers face the challenge of controlling Listeria monocytogenes in order to produce safe, nutritious products. In addition, this workshop provides critical information to help processors stay up to date on regulatory issues and changes. The Foundation for Meat & Poultry Research & Education has worked with experts from across the industry to develop a learning experience tailored to meet those challenges.
From sanitation to corrective actions and sampling plans to data analysis, Listeria control involves your whole team. Not only does the Advanced Listeria monocytogenes Intervention and Control Workshop have presentations on the latest developments in Listeria control and real-life examples from people with plant experience, it features breakout sessions and case studies designed to give you first-hand knowledge to apply to your plant.
