My Meetings


The Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) training courses are hosted by United Fresh and developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA).

All training sessions will be taught by FSPCA FSVP lead instructors and upon completion of the course, you will receive a certificate from the FSPCA, AFDO, and IFPTI. To receive an official training certificate, attendees must stay and participate throughout the duration of the course.

This course will be taught by Dr. Jennifer McEntire, UFPA and Dr. Sergio Nieto-Montenegro, of Food Safety Consulting & Training Solutions, LLC. Although this training will be conducted in English, as a native Spanish speaker, Dr. Montenegro can facilitate discussion with a bilingual audience.
