There has never been a more opportune moment to propel your career forward by becoming an AIB International Certified Food Defense Coordinator. In today’s ever-evolving landscape, ensuring the safety and security of our food supply is considered essential. That’s why the FDA’s FSMA regulations mandate that food facilities establish robust food defense programs to mitigate intentional adulteration risks.

The demand for excellence in food defense extends beyond regulatory requirements. Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standards and discerning customers are pushing for enhanced security measures throughout the supply chain. This paradigm shift calls for a dedicated cadre of professionals who are not only well-versed in food defense strategies but also committed to staying at the forefront of industry advancements.

Prove your dedication and expertise to meet this challenge by becoming an AIB International Certified Food Defense Coordinator. Our comprehensive certification equips you with the knowledge, skills, and expertise needed to be the driving force behind your facility’s food defense program.
