GMP/Sanitation Workshop for Packaging

GMP / Sanitation Workshop for Food Packaging

Food packaging training that ensures your products comply with customer, GFSI, and regulatory requirements.

Learn about the latest regulatory updates and how they impact your facility. Our professional, experienced staff will deliver the most relevant information about the Food Safety Modernization Act, prerequisite programs, self-inspections, and assessment tools in this on-site food packaging training program.
