If you want to make and sell pickles and other acidified foods in North Carolina you must have attended NCSU’s Acidified Foods Manufacturing School.

The Acidified Foods Manufacturing School provides instruction in food handling techniques, food protection principles, personal hygiene, plant sanitation, pH controls, critical factors in acidification, and more.

This year the school is offered in a new format. Segment 1 consists of NINE on-line modules. Participants must complete all modules and pass a short, multiple choice exam at the end of each one. After the successful completion of Segment 1, students can attend Segment 2 which is an all day course in Raleigh.

Segment 2 will be held January 23, 2015 in Raleigh, NC. You must have completed Segment 1 to be able to attend Segment 2! Both segments must be completed before you can legally sell acidified foods in North Carolina.

This two-part school is intended for and directed at the level of Operating Supervisors of acidified foods processing and packaging systems in acidified food establishments. It will qualify individuals producing acidified foods (fresh packed pickles, acidified peppers, pickled eggs, salsa, etc.) to meet the requirements of the umbrella GMP and specific GMP for acidified foods (21 CFR Part 114). For more details, download the workshop flyer below.
