Food Manufacturing

Providing training, resources and facilities for food manufacturing industries.

Food Manufacturing

Advancements in food innovation and changes in FDA regulations have dramatically changed food manufacturing in the United States over the last several years. The passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has raised the bar of regulatory compliance, employee training, and supplier qualification. Our Food, Beverage, and Natural Products (FBNP) program provides training solutions, resources and facilities to food manufacturers to address this changing environment. Whether it's through FDA required training courses or helping food businesses navigate quality and safety concerns, the Food, Beverage, and Natural Products program has solutions to fit your companies needs.
