Madison, WI — The International Dairy Deli Bakery Association (IDDBA) is conducting live webinars in August. Webinars are open to both IDDBA members and nonmembers.
Aug. 4: Environmental Monitoring: Are You Doing Enough?
When it comes to food safety, investments and related costs implemented to strengthen an environmental monitoring program—which help ensure that the products you sell to consumers are safe to eat, as well as the safety of store associates and shoppers—pale in comparison to the alternative: line shutdowns, product recalls, damage to the brand, and potential litigation. Microorganisms such as Listeria and Salmonella can wreak havoc on manufacturing and store operations, as they can oftentimes survive the sanitation process. Join IDDBA and SCS Global Services as it reviews and discusses:
• Pre-operational monitoring.
• Zone locations.
• Frequency and methods of sampling.
• Testing technologies.
