Introduction to FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food Course

The new FSMA regulation requires that every processing facility have at least one individual trained by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) overseeing the implementation of the facility’s food safety plan and other key tasks.
