Food Labeling and Food Safety Plans (KONA)

Tue 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Topic: Managing a Business

There are many food entrepreneurs in Hawaii offering a variety of products, but with so many regulations to deal with, they may not be aware of all the regulations that cover food labeling and safety. This class is geared toward the small food manufacturer to make them aware of what needs to be on a label and how to format that and to understand what is needed in a basic food plan and how to prepare one. The Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA) requires most manufacturers to comply with new nutrition labeling and food safety plans. There are also existing food regulations which businesses need to be aware of. The State Department of Health requires all food manufacturers to have at minimum, a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan; FSMA requirements are even more in-depth. Producers may have taken classes but are having difficulty in developing what’s been learned into a document for their business. The class will provide practical tips on preparing labels and plans, and time will be available for private one on one consultation after the class.

Speaker(s): John Nakishima, Food Safety Services Hawaii and Nina Ann Tanabe, Pacific Food Technology
