Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

The focus will be on the who, what, when, where, why and how of analytical microbiological services for the food industry. There are many issues beyond simply cost of testing to consider when trying to decide if analytical support services should be retained in-house or sub-contracted out. Accreditation Status and FSMA requirements, Scope of Accreditation, Availability of technical skills, Technology, Communication and facility suitability are all elements that will influence the final decision. Each corporate entity should evaluate its own needs based on these considerations before committing to “in-house” or “out-house” laboratory services. But do not assume that “in-house or out-house” are mutually exclusive.
