The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) released its slate of meat session as part of the PROCESS EXPO UNIVERSITY educational program taking place at Chicago's McCormick Place from November 3-6, 2013. These sessions will take place on the PROCESS EXPO show floor throughout the four day event and attendance is free of charge for all registered attendees.

PROCESS EXPO UNIVERSITY’s meat track will feature speakers from Iowa State University, Ohio State University and University of Wisconsin. The topics include Dry Sausage Technologies and Product Opportunities, Novel Food Process Engineering Applications for the Meat Industry: Nanotechnology for food safety, Core Considerations for Improving the Shelf-life of Meat and Poultry Products, Considerations and Challenges with Alternative Curing Systems, Basic Labeling for the Meat Industry, Secrets of Success for Coarse Ground and Emulsified Cooked Sausage Products, Increase Food Safety and Sales with GFSI Certification, Oven Validation and Process Lethality and How to Improve Quality and Yields in your Oven.

“This program is a great opportunity for our customers," said Tom Kittle, chairman of FPSA’s Meat Industry Suppliers Alliance (MISA) and president of Handtmann Inc. “These speakers are at the top of their field, addressing topics that are of critical concern to all meat processors. Our attendees will have the opportunity to learn from them and take away valuable ideas that will be of great benefit to their business.”

“There is not a single event out there that can match the level of expertise that meat processors will find at PROCESS EXPO,” said FPSA President and CEO David Seckman. “When you consider our educational program, the co-location with the NAMA Outlook Conference, and the 500+ exhibitors on our show floor, it’s clear that this year’s show will be a tremendous resource for the industry.”

PROCESS EXPO 2013 is co-located with the International Dairy Show and the North American Meat Association's (NAMA) Outlook Conference. Registered attendees will have open access to all three events. To register and to find more information on these sessions and others please visit
