The National Egg Products School, sponsored by the University of Georgia, Department of Poultry Science and the American Egg Board, is now open for registration. The biennial, four-day program gives attendees an in-depth farm to fork review of eggs and egg products, including hands-on sessions, exploring the innate functionality of eggs. The course material covers eggs from their initial formation all the way through to packaging for industrial use. The program is intended for those involved in the egg industry, egg processing, allied industries and foodservice (including bakers, food formulators and chefs.)
In addition to egg basics, students will learn about troubleshooting processing, egg safety, regulations, safe handling and storage from a faculty of academics and industry experts.
