The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) today announced the details of two important topics for the educational program at PROCESS EXPO 2015. These sessions include “Different Types of Audits and How to Prepare for Them” which will be presented on Tuesday, September 15th and repeated on Wednesday, September 16th, and “Manufacture of Fresh Sausages” which will be held on Wednesday, September 16th and Thursday, September 17th. Both sessions will be conducted by Iowa State Professor of Animal Science, Dr. Joseph Cordray.

“Dr. Cordray’s fresh sausage session comes straight out of the very popular Iowa State Sausage and Processed Meats Short Course held each summer in Ames,” said Gil Williams, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and President of Poly-clip System USA and Canada. “PROCESS EXPO attendees will get the chance to learn from one of the country’s top experts in this field and take these lessons back to their business and improve their final product.”

“Food processors are often audited in many areas including Food Safety, Food Defense, Food Quality and Animal Handling. Given changes in the industry, processors not currently involved in audits can expect to be at some point in the future as more retailers are requiring their vendors to be audited,” said FPSA President and CEO David Seckman.

This year’s program includes 35+ hours of education addressing a wide variety of important topics that cover all major segments of the food and beverage industry. Presented by experts from 15 of North America’s top university food science programs, these sessions are free of charge to any registered attendee and will be conducted during show hours throughout the four day event.

Advance registration is $25 for food and beverage processors and registered attendees will have open access to all three trade show events; including all educational programs. For more information about the show, to see the entire educational schedule or to register please visit
