State HACCP Contacts and Coordinators

HACCP Contacts and Coordinators provide technical advice, assistance, resources and conduct activities to support HACCP implementation in small and very small plants.

The Contact is generally the State meat and poultry program director or another representative of the State government. ( A comprehensive listing of all state food regulatory officials  is available from the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO)).

Coordinators are affiliated with Universities and provide additional one-on-one advice and assistance to small and very small plants. Coordinators also develop and provide training and HACCP seminars.
