FAPC has the expertise to meet the needs and demands of the food and agricultural industries. Take advantage of the educational programs, trainings and seminars at FAPC to help you stay on the forefront of cutting-edge value-added processing and technology.
Chuck Willoughby, business and marketing relations manager, said FAPC has the experience and knowledge to help someone refresh skills and renew a certification, or help a entrepreneur navigate a new business endeavor.
"FAPC has developed a nationally recognized reputation for pertinent quality trainings, especially those that are food safety related," Willoughby said. "Nearly all of the training participants work for companies that also received technical and business assistance, whether it be at their respective facilities or in the pilot plant at FAPC. The relationship FAPC has with the food industry, particularly in Oklahoma, is unique."
The Homemade Food Freedom Act workshop will help participants interested in understanding the requirements of safely producing food and drink products made in home for resale under this new law. This workshop is offered in different locations across Oklahoma on Feb. 21, March 30, April 13, July 20, Sept. 27 and Nov. 8. Open to the public, the training will focus on explaining the new law, food safety hazards and control strategies, good manufacturing practices, labeling and allergen management, food safety in canning, liabilities and legalities. This training is specifically designed to meet the Homemade Food Freedom Act’s training requirements and will provide additional tools to help producers provide a safe product to consumers and stay within the law guidelines.
