Modern, HACCP-based food safety systems are underpinned by prerequisite programs. A significant part of these are Good Manufacturing Processes (GMPs) including cleaning and sanitation, pest control and foreign body control.
Cleaning and Sanitation Principles
This course provides an understanding of good food manufacturing cleaning and sanitation principles and practices. It covers how detergents work, the difference types of sanitisers, chemical usage, correct cleaning flow, personal protective equipment (PPEs), safety data sheets (SDSs) and more.
