Extension Food Science Workshops, Seminars, and Training Courses For nearly 20 years, specialists at the University of Georgia’s Extension Food Science have offered industry-specific food safety training courses to food processors in Georgia, the U.S., and internationally. As regulations against foodborne illness get tougher, the food industry must incorporate control measures into their processes and train their workers in hygiene and food safety practices. We offer many training opportunities throughout the year, many of which are designed specifically for the Meat and Poultry Industry or the Fresh Produce and Fresh-Cut Produce industries. With regulations and public scrutiny on food safety tightening daily, producers and processors will receive expert assistance in setting up process controls and food safety mechanisms within their own operations. On-site consultations may be scheduled through your county Cooperative Extension agent or by contacting us.
