We all have been suffered tremendously due to COVID-19.  Even though we see some lights as we try to come out of the long tunnel, we are still in a difficult condition to have in-person surimi school program.  To continue to be connected each other within our industry, Jae Park Surimi School has now moved to offer surimi school webinar using the previously proposed schedule. In addition, since it is also difficult to keep audience in front of PC for all day, we are going to offer a shortened version: 2.5 – 3 hr program a day for 3 consecutive days.  Audience can select the subjects according to their interest.
