Food Allergen Programs-Current Trends, Technologies and Risk Mitigation

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

An Allergen Control Plan is a critical component in your product safety initiatives. Your Allergen Control Plan is your company’s written document regarding the storage, handling, processing, packaging, and identification of allergenic foods and ingredients. Your Allergen Control Plan must be implemented, audited, enforced and updated continually. Every time you make a change in a process or a product, assess your plan and update as needed. 

Every time you hire a new employee or change the responsibilities of an employee, make certain they understand their role in the Allergen Control Plan through documented training. Every time you begin working with a new supplier, evaluate their Allergen Control plan and change yours as needed. If you change or add locations, a new Allergen Control Plan should be developed specifically for that location.

In this webinar join expert speaker Michael Brodsky, where he will discuss the technologies and practices that enhance an allergen program and it’s supporting programs like GMP, HACCP and sanitation.
