MR. FRANCIS L. BARNES
Dear Mr. Barnes:
In the year 1985 from February 11 to 15 I was part of the seminary “technological advances in food canning” Organized by the National Association of Food packers A.C. ( Asociacion Nacional de Empacadores de Productos Alimenticios A.C. ) .
With the participation of :
Instituto Mexicano de Comercio Exterior ( sede del evento )
Coordinación general de integración y desarrollo de la Secretaria de Agricultura y Recursos Hidráulicos
Food and Drug Administration de los Estados Unidos
Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Agricultura y la Alimentación ( F.A.O.)
Laboratorios Nacionales de Fomento Industrial ( LANFI )
Where you participed as ponent of this seminar and we had the chance to meet. In this seminary we had an evaluation at the end of each module; unluckily, i never got the aknowledgement given by the F.D.A, for this type of seminars, that recgonize us before your organization.
It is higly important for me to know if I am really registered in your files, as an approved participant of the course. I understan it has been along time, and that it is a hard work but I need to know which steps are needed to be able to get any acknowledgment. I trust you will be able to give me this information, or in case it is not possible, the requirements needed, to be recognized before your organization as a known thecnician of food anning.
I wish to thank you in advance for all the attention you may pay to this letter, best regards.
