Sanitation Control Procedures (SCP) for Fish and Fishery Products
Jun 12 @ 8:30 am – 4:45 pm

The Sanitation Control Procedures training is intended to assist the seafood industry in developing and implementing “Sanitation Control Procedures” as mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This regulation is commonly know as the “Seafood HACCP Regulation” which became effective December 18, 1997. Since this date, seafood processors have been required to ‘monitor’ sanitary control procedures used during processing in order to show their compliance with good sanitary conditions and practices.

The School of Nutrition and Food Sciences offers a one day Sanitation Control Procedures for Processing Fish and Fishery Products (SCP) training designed to educate seafood processors, packers, wholesales, importers, harvesters and warehouses about sanitation procedures. Participants who complete the course receive a certificate issued by AFDO, that fulfills the FDA requirements for seafood SCP training.

2017 Louisiana Seafood Cook-Off @ Cajundome Convention Center
Jun 20 @ 4:30 pm

2017 Louisiana Seafood Cook-Off will take place in Lafayette
Release Date: Monday, March 27, 2017

Dear Chefs and Restaurateurs,

Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser is excited to announce that the 2017 Louisiana Seafood Cook-Off will take place in Lafayette, Louisiana June 20 in conjunction with the Eat Lafayette kick-off. This will be a fantastic opportunity for chefs from across the state to compete before an expected 2,000 attendees for the title “King or Queen of Louisiana Seafood.”

This is the tenth year for the state’s premier cooking competition which is presented by the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board in partnership with the Louisiana Restaurant Association. The event will take place at the Cajundome Convention Center starting at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 20. There is room for a limited number of chefs to compete for the title of King or Queen of Louisiana Seafood which allows them to join the ranks of a prestigious list of former winners including Chefs Brian Landry, Tory McPhail, Chris Lusk, Aaron Burgau, and Michael Brewer all of New Orleans. Chefs Cody and Samantha Carroll took the crown while in New Roads prior to opening their second restaurant in New Orleans. Chefs Keith and Nealy Frentz showcased the northshore’s talent when they took the prize home to Covington. The current King, Chef Blake Phillips, was the second chef from Monroe to win, following in the footsteps of Chef Cory Bahr.

All corners of the state are encouraged to have chefs complete the attached entry form for the chance to represent their region in Lafayette. The winner will have the opportunity to represent Louisiana at the Great American Seafood Cook-Off in August and a variety of events during their reign and beyond.

We look forward to meeting you at the 10th Annual Louisiana Seafood Cook-Off in Lafayette!

Karen J. Profita Executive Director,
Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board
