Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 10.01.55 AMU.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) has developed a Food Defense Orientation program for poultry and egg processors, focusing on raising awareness of potential risks faced by the industry and encouraging employees to be active participants in protecting products in the workplace. The program offers a short orientation video for plant employees that will help them during training activities in poultry and egg facilities. It also includes a detailed presentation for managers and key personnel directly involved in the design and execution of a food defense plan.

The Food Defense Orientation presentation discusses why poultry and egg processors should prepare a food defense program, what key elements should be taken into account and the importance of maintaining a food defense plan. The program also includes a resource guide to help with the creation of a food defense program and additional information that can assist in improving an existing program.

The CD is available at no charge to Association members, and the CD can be ordered here. Non-members may purchase copies of the CD for $200 each.
