Food Safety Training Programmes
Food chains are understood as the collective links of production (including raw material production), processing and distribution of food. These include global trade and import, storage, transport, and sale or supply to the final consumer. Food chains are becoming more and more complex networks in a dynamic and global environment.Hence, INDOCERT is offering various awareness training programmes specifically designed for educational institutes, food sectors and food chain related industries.
Food is a basic need and its safety of great importance to consumers. It is the responsibility of actors in the chain to ensure this safety and to be aware of the vulnerability of complex systems. Securing of food safety along the whole food chain is for consumers as important as ever before, despite unquestionable improvement of the situation in this area. A chronology of outbreaks, and contamination incidents, has occurred across the globe in the last few years which, at times, have undermined the public’s confidence in the safety of food, in industries’ commitment to produce safe food and in the regulatory agencies’ ability to police the global food chain.
People expect the food they eat to be safe and suitable for consumption. Food borne illness and food borne injury are at best unpleasant; at worst, they are fatal. But there are also other consequences, such as decreasing consumers’ confidence, producers’ and manufacturers’ profits, trade, tourism and employment. Added to that, though not a safety subject, food spoilage is wasteful and costly.
Staff are a food business’s greatest asset but untrained staff can be a company’s greatest liability therefore awareness and education initiatives are key to creating a greater understanding of the rationale behind good food safety practices which will assist in achieving greater compliance. Staff should receive supervision, or training, commensurate with their responsibilities. The challenge of preparing quality safe food begins with well trained and knowledgeable workforce.
