Manhattan, KS – The recent launch of AIB’s newest environmental monitoring service meets an industry need for food manufacturing companies across the globe.
AIB’s new Environmental Monitoring Consulting Service helps clients comply with the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This consulting service will advise food facilities on how to develop and improve their microbial environmental monitoring programs to reduce the risk of food safety events such as outbreaks and recalls.
“Over the last decade, environmental monitoring has changed from a random sampling activity to an essential component of a food safety program. Now it is a requirement of FSMA,” said Lakshmikantha Channaiah, PhD, Director of Microbiology. “Companies are turning to AIB because we are recognized by industry as technical and production experts. We offer a holistic, all-inclusive view of the food production process, emphasizing the upstream and downstream production impacts.”
“Our unique program will eventually grow to include a full line of microbiology support services such as kill step validation and shelf-life studies,” Channaiah said.
Also, AIB’s FSMA Awareness Webinar series will launch September 30. This series of recorded webinars will provide viewers from the global food, beverage, and distribution industry with insight into the key elements of FSMA.
“AIB has been flooded with FSMA-related questions in recent months and the industry is scrambling to understand how the new regulations apply to them in expectation of the final rules that are set to release in 2015,” said Lance Reeve, Interim Director, Food Safety Services Innovation. “Our experts have read and interpreted the rules and grouped all of the relevant information into eight easy-to-understand webinars that give viewers a concise interpretation of how the changes apply to them.”
