This web course will introduce participants to the basic unit operations involved in the processing of fruit and vegetable juices, the hazards that are reasonably likely to occur, measures to control these hazards to render the finished juice safe, and the differences in the regulations governing juice at the commercial, retail, and foodservice levels. Interactive activities will be used to demonstrate the application of HACCP/Preventive Controls principles to produce safe juice and affirm participant learning.


The cost for this web course is $75.00US or you can choose three (3) courses for $150.00US.

If you are an employee of a U.S. federal, state, local, tribal or territorial government agency, with a valid government email address, the course is FREE. If you are a government employee and do not have a government email address, please contact Jessica Rickett at (865) 974-6530 or on how to receive the course for free.


The course is a self-paced, web-based course that will cover juice-processing operations at the commercial, retail, and foodservice levels. Juice processing operations are mandated to use HACCP principles to produce safe food under 21 CFR 120. The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) also requires the use of HACCP principles for all food operations from farm to fork under Preventive Controls.

At the retail and foodservice levels, there are provisions that cover juicing operations. These provisions are contained in the FDA Model Food Code and remain voluntary until States adopt them partially or entirely. Thus, it is important to determine the status of the adoption of the Model Food Code in your specific area to determine the scope of the regulations that apply.

Target Audience

The target audience for this course is industry and federal, state, tribal, territorial and local food inspectors.
