Montana USDA processing fair - Great Falls - Oct 20-21, 2011

Monday, October 3, 2011, 5:23 pm

For the first time the Office of Public Instruction School Nutrition Programs has put together a USDA Foods Processing Fair which includes classes on updates in USDA regulations.  This is a mandatory meeting for all school districts interested in processing products further. Brokers and manufacturers are coming together from across the country to provide specific details on processing as well as how commodities are changing to meet new regulations.  

Funding is available to help school districts attend the meeting as we feel it is important to send your school food service director, manager or whoever is in charge of making the buying decision for your district.  Funding includes one night of lodging per district. Please make hotel reservations as soon as possible using the detailed conference and agenda that is posted on the registration link. Please complete one registration form for each participant. The registration is available at .
