Other workshops include a “ Challenges and Opportunities in Meat Product Traceability” session, scheduled to take place from 8 to 10 a.m. on January 26, which will address global meat traceability and the unique challenges faced by U.S. producers. Meanwhile, the “ Global Food Safety Initiative: Planning for Success” session will detail the top mistakes—and how to avoid them—in achieving or continuing certification from Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) recognized certification schemes. The “ Process Technology Workshop: Brines, Marinades and Cook Technologies ,” scheduled from 8 to 10 a.m. on January 28, will cover the latest techniques and ingredients for improving the use of brines and marinade in plants and will discuss sanitation best practices.
