Service Solutions: Why Good Manufacturing Practices are Critical for Cannabis Edibles Success (and Other Lessons from the Food & Dietary Supplements Sectors)
NCIA’s #IndustryEssentials webinars are our new weekly educational series featuring a variety of programs allowing us to provide you timely, engaging and essential education when you need it most.
The Service Solutions series is our sponsored content webinar program which will allow business owners the opportunity to learn more about premier products, services and industry solutions directly from our network of established suppliers, providers and thought leaders.
Our panel of experts will discuss why food safety programs are important for those making edibles, even though they’re not federally required (yet). ImEPIK has pulled together a unique group of experts who will cover the importance of Good Manufacturing Practices in the U.S. and Good Production Practices in Canada, as well as certification standards and training options.
1. Discuss why a food framework will likely be adopted with cannabis edibles become federally regulated;
2. Recognize the importance of incorporating GMPs and GPPs as part of cannabis edibles production;
3. Establish what training and certification programs they’ll need to establish to prepare for federal requirements.
