Fresh-cut Products: Maintaining Quality & Safety

Fresh-cut Products: Maintaining Quality & Safety

Virtual Workshop - Five Weekly Live Sessions - Tuesdays, November 17, 24, December 1, 8, 15, 2020

The workshop "Fresh-cut Products: Maintaining Quality & Safety" provides an intensive and substantive overview of fresh-cut production, processing, packaging, distribution and quality assurance. Participants gain working knowledge of established and new procedures through topic-related sessions and demonstrations. Additionally, we feature discussions on fresh-cut marketing, new packaging, product physiology, microbial control, and sensory evaluation. And our practical demonstration on the impact of temperature on packaged product quality reinforces all the temperature-related discussions.

The new, interactive, virtual format will include pre-recorded video presentations available one week before the live sessions; weekly live overview, highlights and Q&A sessions with instructors; demonstrations, and break-out discussions.

The Live Sessions start Tuesday, November 17 from 8 to 11 Pacific Daylight Time, and continue every Tuesday for 5 weeks.

The live sessions will be recorded for later viewing in case you are unavailable at this time.

The fresh-cut industry and this workshop have changed considerably over the past 20 years. Join us if you are new to the fresh-cut industry or if you want updates on many topics important to the success of the fresh-cut fruit and vegetable sector. More information about the workshop can be found here.
