MCLEAN, Va. (FPSA) — The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) has added the course "Meeting the Need for Electronic Track and Trace" to the PROCESS EXPO educational program. Presented by Kris Dornan of Rockwell Automation, this course takes place during the 2013 PROCESS EXPO trade show from November 3-6 at McCormick Place (South and North Halls) in Chicago and admission is free of charge for all registered attendees.
“We are excited about adding this important topic to an already stellar educational program," said Jeff Dahl, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association and Business Manager of JBT FoodTech. “With over 30 hours of educational programming planned throughout the four day event, food processors will have a wide selection of manufacturing solutions at their disposal, both in the classroom and on the show floor."
"Tracking and traceability is an integral part of the new environment in which the food and beverage industry finds itself today," noted David Seckman, President & CEO of FPSA. "Facing ever tighter food safety requirements, processors are expected to be able to report both forwards and backwards in order to quickly identify contamination sources and finished products."
PROCESS EXPO's educational programs are free of charge to all registered attendees at the trade show. In addition, PROCESS EXPO attendees will also have free access to the International Dairy Show floor and sessions in the NAMA Outlook Conference. All events will run throughout the four day trade show.
