The International Poultry Expo is collaborating with the University of Georgia and the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture to promote a poultry processing Spanish course to be held January 28 through February 1, 2012, in Athens, Ga.

The course is a five-day program that addresses current issues in quality, safety and value-added processing, with program topics including good poultry practices; primary, secondary and further processing; food safety integration; value-added processing; and quality and culinary parameters.

Registration for the course is $1,200, and regular registration is open through December 23. Registration after January 9, 2012, will require an additional fee. Registrants who sign up for the Poultry Processing Spanish Course will also receive registration to the 2012 International Poultry Expo, which will take place January 24 through 26, 2012, in Atlanta.
