Available for MP4 video download by purchasing a corporate or single-site license.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) created a regulation that establishes Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) for the food industry, the criteria that food processing and handling facilities must meet to help reduce the risk of contamination. Individual facilities must then look at these criteria and develop their own detailed Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) that will keep the food they work with contamination-free.
In this first of two GMP programs, we'll take a look at how following GMPs can help you to ensure the safety and quality of the food products you're processing or handling as well as the first three sections of the FDA's regulation, which address personnel, plants and grounds, and sanitary operations.
