Upcoming Events


Michigan State University will be presenting a Better Process Control School (BPCS) for those interested in Acidified foods and/or Low-Acid Canned foods. There is a two day Acidified course (October 14-16, 2013) and a four day Acidified foods & Low-Acid Canned foods course (October 14-18, 2013) available. This will take place right here on campus. Please see the link below for further details on registration fees, parking, transportation, hotel accommodations, class times, and specific class topics. 


How do I know if I need to take this training? BPCS training will satisfy the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development (MDARD) requirement for licensure of acidified and low-acid Michigan-made food products. This training pertains to shelf-stable foods only. To learn more about how food products are classified as acidified, low-acid, or formulated acid, visit this link: http://www.productcenter.msu.edu/uploads/files/39/April%202009%20Product%20Center%20Newsletter.pdf.
