- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after January 1, 2021
Recent legislation now allows the FDA to focus on preventing food safety problems rather than reacting to them after they occur. The FDA must establish science-based standards for the safe growing, harvesting, packaging, and holding of produce. Food Safety: Interpreting and Applying the Various Agency Regulations demonstrates the importance of food safety, including why and how the food processing industry is required to follow the FDA’s food Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). The book discusses the need for sanitation and methods for achieving it through the design, construction, and maintenance of sanitary food processing facilities and equipment.
