Food Safety Training Courses


Have you heard the rumblings of major retailers now asking food manufacturers to obtain certification to one of the global food safety standards? The rumors are true – several major retailers have notified select food manufacturers to become certified, some as early as this year. Other notifications are expected as more food manufacturers and products are included in the requirement. Are you wondering what these Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certification schemes are? What are the requirements? Do they apply to me? Which is best for me? How do I approach this implementation?

To answer those questions and more, Quest Analytical is offering the following course:
