Food Defense Coordinator Online
Online food defense training for developing a plan to mitigate identified vulnerabilities and prevent intentional adulteration
Food defense isn't a new concept, but it is a new requirement that all food facilities must meet due to FDA's Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations. It's a vital component of a food protection plan for the food industry. Driven by government regulations, certification programs, and customer requirements, food facilities are tasked with developing sound food defense programs to limit the concern for intentional adulteration.
Challenge how you would handle intentional adulteration in your food plant with the help of our online training. The completely renovated course relates directly back to your customer requirements, the FSMA final ruling, and GFSI certification standards. Learn how to design a comprehensive food defense plan that focuses on FDA's newly-imposed regulations with our easy-to-navigate online training.
