FIBR is your connection for keeping your business competitive and compliant. Over a decade ago, FIBR established the Regional Wholesale Food Processors Committee (RWFPC), which is a co-operative effort between FIBR and regulatory agencies from the local to the federal level. Members of the committee include the public health departments of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, San Diego Counties and the City of Vernon, the California Department of Public Health, CalOSHA, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The RWFPC meets quarterly and provides a forum for information sharing among the agencies and industry and as a group, works on annual projects. One such project is the Bi-Annual Southern California Meet Your Inspectors Forum, which provides a unique opportunity for food industry representatives to come and learn first- hand about the most recent and important regulatory laws or issues facing the industry, and more importantly to meet their inspectors in a friendly environment. The RWFPC has also produced two informational documents designed to create ease of compliance for the industry, the Construction Guidebook for Wholesale Food Facilities and the Environmental Guidebook for Wholesale Food Facilities.
FIBR encourages you to make use of these guides, attend the Meet Your Inspectors Forums and to take advantage of other opportunities FIBR creates to build strong bridges between industry and the regulatory community. FIBR relationships with these agencies, and the RWFPC network, means we can help you get connected to the right resources!
