Crisis Management & Food Defense Workshop

Presented by the Food Processing Center and Merieux NutriSciences

Purpose of Workshop

FSMA and a fear of being safe is on everyone's mind. Is your organization prepared to manage the risks and hazards that are lurking inside your facility? This timely course covers food defense measures and strategies that attendees should employ throughout their processing operations.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Learn the basic concepts and strategies of defending your products from intentional contamination and sabotage
  • Find out how to structure your crisis management team to effectively work with your local response when and if a crisis occurs
  • Find out how to build an effective crisis management plan to help turn any negative situation into a more positive situation and get your operation back to normal as quickly as possible
  • Students will deal with and learn about some real life issues built into table top scenarios (exercises) as part of a crisis management team and experience a mock press (media) briefing as a response to the crisis
