Hazard prevention for pet food

AIB and Kansas State University collaborate to help pet food companies meet FSMA requirements

AIB International and Kansas State University’s IGP Institute have joined forces to help pet food companies meet new federal regulations. The workshop will take place in Manhattan, KS from February 23-27, 2015.

The Food Safety Modernization Act is impacting the animal food industry in a big way. For the first time, FDA has a legislative mandate to require comprehensive, prevention-based controls across the food supply, including animal food. Now pet food manufacturers are working hard to ensure they meet FSMA’s requirements for hazard analysis and preventive controls.

The AIB-KSU Pet Food Safety Simulation Workshop will help pet food companies get up-to-speed with the newest regulations. In this simulation workshop AIB, K-State experts and industry guest speakers will teach participants how to construct a HACCP plan, identify GMPs, establish sanitation procedures and microbial control measures, and develop an environmental monitoring program. This four-day course is targeted to pet food company personnel, specifically food safety and quality assurance managers, line supervisors, sanitation supervisors, and operational leads.

"We are very excited about the partnership between AIB and K-State’s IGP Institute. This unique training experience will provide pet food manufacturers with real, hands-on experiences so that they fully understand the principles, technical concerns, and role of food safety in their facilities" said Carlos Campabadal, IGP Institute feed manufacturing and grain quality management specialist.
