Food Handling, Hygiene and Good Manufacturing Practice

This one day course begins with a basic introduction to food safety covering food handling and food hygiene principles that are practiced the world over. With this foundation of knowledge, delegates are ready to move onto studying Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) in the afternoon session:

In order for a food safety management system to be effective, it is essential that HACCP be supported by GMP that control the general hygiene and environmental conditions in a food operation.
