AFIA offering free FSMA webinar series

Industry readies as compliance date draws near.

In order to continue its mission of educating the feed industry on the implementation requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the American Feed Industry Assn. (AFIA), along with Feedstuffs, recently announced the latest training options. Thanks to industry sponsorship, AFIA will host a series of four free webinars spanning from late August through September that focus on the FSMA rule.

"This rule is massive. There's much to comprehend and limited time remaining to do so," said Richard Sellers, AFIA senior vice president of public policy and education. "We have divided the webinar series into four parts to cover the most amount of material -- with time for questions -- in an efficient manner and are very grateful to those members who offered to sponsor these webinars."

Each webinar will last two-and-a-half hours. The first three webinars will build upon each other, while the fourth will focus on topics related to pet food and pet food ingredients. Speakers for the webinars include AFIA staff experts and officials from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
