The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently released its FSMA Training Strategy outlining its evolving vision of how the agency will work with public and private partners on the development and delivery of food-industry training, according to the Global Cold Chain Alliance. The strategy outlines the options for those who must comply with the new food safety regulations and introduces the FDA’s partners in promoting training to the global community of food suppliers.
FDA stated that the most important goal of any training program is the outcome—that it advances knowledge among the food industry to meet FSMA requirements. FDA acknowledged that there is more than one way to get there and there will be a variety of training options and delivery formats. The FSMA Training Strategy outlines those options and formats, in addition to introducing the partners in government, industry and academia who are working with the FDA on the development and delivery of training to the global community of food suppliers.
