Food Safety Modernization Act Compliance Workshop for Wineries

December 1, 2016 @ 8:30 am - December 2, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

The Colorado Wine Industry Development Board will host two 2-day workshops, Dec. 1-2 in Broomfield and Dec. 12-13 in Grand Junction, for wineries to prepare the food safety compliance plans and documents required for the inspections mandated under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) passed by Congress in 2011.  The law will take effect for manufacturers of food for human consumption, which includes wine, in September 2017 and in September 2018 for smaller manufacturers.

Scott Roy, of Food Safety Systemss, LLC, a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) certified by the FDA, will lead the workshop and will walk you through the process of creating your own individualized documents required to satisfy FSMA requirements. The process of creating these documents will support you in improving quality controls in your winemaking as well as provide evidence to help educate health inspectors unfamiliar with winery operations to better understand your process and why wine does not present the same kind of food safety risks that other food products do.

These documents you will create during this workshop include:

  • Good Manufacturing Procedures (GMP)
  • Sanitation Standard Operating Practices (SSOP)
  • Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP)
  • Food Safety Plan (FSP)

The registration fee is $125 for the first person from a winery and $25 for each subsequent attendee from the same business up to four total. Lunch is included. Both days begin at 8:30 AM.  Each 2-day session is limited to 20 participants total.  If there is sufficient demand, we will offer more of these workshops in other parts of the state or repeat them in Broomfield and Grand Junction.  Keep in mind that the registration fee will most likely go up for future sessions of this training.  If you were to hire Food Safety Solutions on your own, you could pay well over $1000 for this same kind of training and for the assistance in developing these necessary documents and procedures.
