Benefits of attending
Food safety has to be ensured at all stages of the supply chain. Farming Organisations, Operators, Food Business Organisations & Malting Organisations have the responsibility to ensure that the production of food and feed stuffs meet hygiene requirements.
Food and feed safety control measures are typically integrated into good practice [e.g. good agricultural, manufacturing, operational and hygiene practices (GAP, GMP, GOP and GHP)]. GAP, GOP and GMP relate to the control and sustainability of operations and GHP addresses the conditions and measures to ensure safety of products.
In hazard analysis (HACCP) based safety management systems many GHPs are likely to be prerequisite programmes (PRPs). Where the hazard analysis identifies significant hazards that need to be controlled by targeted preventative measures they may be categorised as critical control points or operational PRPs. This course provides an understanding of typical hazards, the causes and sources, and control measures based on accepted good practice. Special reference will be made to microbiological and chemical contaminants and the identification, evaluation and control of hazards significant for food safety and feed.
The course will benefit those responsible for establishing and implementing food and feed safety control measures and assuring compliance with adopted practices, and those wishing to obtain a better understanding of food and feed safety controls.
