Battle Creek, Michigan (PRWEB) July 29, 2013

Food protection officials from 18 countries met July 25 at the International Food Protection Training Institute (IFPTI) to discuss effective food safety training within a globally integrated food system. The group’s visit to The Training Institute was part of the annual “International Food Safety Short Course” sponsored by Michigan State University (MSU) and included presentations by Gerald Wojtala, executive director of IFPTI.

“This is our third year partnering with MSU and providing training for the International Food Safety Short Course,” said Wojtala. “This course is an important example of different countries working and learning together to keep the global food supply safe.”

Forty-three food protection officials visited the Battle Creek-based institute from the following countries:

Argentina
Barbados
Brazil
Burkina Faso
Chile
Colombia
Costa Rica
Ecuador
El Salvador
Ghana
Hong Kong
Jamaica
Nigeria
Russia
Saudi Arabia
Sudan
Thailand
Uganda

“An increasingly global food supply requires us to look at the big picture when it comes to food safety,” said Wojtala. “The programs provided by The Training Institute focus on helping food safety professionals not only in the U.S., but also throughout the world.”
