Event description

Description

Join Food Starter, and the Food Commercialization Program participants, in this Overview of Food Safety Management Systems led by the Food Processing HR Council's Deanna Zenger.


Certification to a food safety standard has become a critical issue for food processors as expectations of regulatory agencies, buyers and consumers drive the movement to certify food safety management systems, on a global basis. This in-depth introductory course is designed to inform and guide management and other personnel involved in the certification process for a facility to choose a certification scheme and begin the process.

The course outlines the variety of globally recognized food safety management schemes a company can certify to, the governing authorities they are subject to, both in Canada, and internationally, and the standards organizations and certifying bodies involved in the process for each scheme. Course participants learn how to choose a system, and the processes involved in achieving certification.

Finally, the course outlines the reasons why processing facilities that do not achieve certification or are not working toward certification will find themselves at an economic disadvantage, and how certification contributes to reducing global incidences of foodborne disease and deaths.
