Friday, August 20, 2010

(American Meat Institute)

Registration is now open for the Center of the Plate Training® Short Course, co-sponsored by the North American Meat Processors (NAMP) and the American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF). The course will be held at Kendall College in downtown Chicago September 23-24, 2010.

Center of the Plate Training teaches participants about standards and specifications by demonstrating how the cuts commonly found in foodservice and retail are fabricated. Participants also learn about variations in quality and how standards can impact the consistency of meat products. 

AMI members are eligible for the lower members-only rate. In addition, if three people register, the fourth registration is free.

AMIF and NAMP are also partnering to offer the upcoming E. coli O157:H7 Conference for Beef Further Processors.

This year’s conference, to be held September 28-29, 2010, in Chicago, will devote an entire morning to achieving validation for further processors. 

Other topics that will be covered include a pre-harvest update, an FSIS policy update, a discussion of how science and the law affect the industry, information on suppliers and an overall HACCP plan update.
