This course provides an essential guide to microbiology within the food manufacturing environment and how it can impact on the daily running of a site.
Who should attend?
A one day `taster session’ suitable for those requiring basic microbiological knowledge in order to operate safely in food manufacturing.
The course will cover an introduction to basic microbiology along with an overview of how a laboratory tests for microbes. The main sources of factory-based bacteria will be examined and guidance will be given on how to minimise those bacterial risks. A profile on food poisoning and a study of the major bacterial groups completes the programme.
