Food Defense

Registration Deadline: April 29, 2019 


A good understanding and working knowledge of food safety management systems is essential.


Protecting your brand, your facility and your customers from intentional harm drives the requirement for a robust food defense plan. GFSI-benchmarked standards and FSMA require sites to have a food defense plan. A facility must first assess its vulnerabilities and then develop, implement and document a food defense plan to mitigate the risk of intentional adulteration. Learn how to conduct a vulnerability assessment and develop your food defense plan in this training program.

At the end of the program, you will be able to:

  • Analyze the risks in your process and determine vulnerable areas in your operations
  • Differentiate between Vulnerability Analysis and Critical Control Point (VACCP) and Threat Assessment and Critical Control Point (TACCP)
  • Begin to document your food defense plan
  • Develop and implement mitigation strategies to protect against intentional adulteration
