Workshop Overview

Microorganisms are often the culprits behind numerous food poisoning outbreaks within the industry, and they also contribute to food product spoilage.

This course is specifically tailored to offer an overview of various types of food-poisoning and spoilage microorganisms. It covers their growth and survival requirements, as well as the mechanisms employed by the food industry to manage and control them.

Learning is made fun & practical

Progress Excellence takes a unique approach to training in food safety, quality, health and safety, environmental and laboratory:

  • Sector specific examples are used to ensure relevance and understanding of the topic.
  • All our training modules are highly interactive with practical activities that entrench theoretical learning.
