FSNS has launched a new Microbiology and Food Safety course that is suitable for personnel working in food processing environments. This course will provide the fundamentals of food microbiology and provide an understanding of how microorganisms behave and how to control them. It will raise awareness of the importance of process control, hygiene, and sanitation in the food processing environment.
This course introduces material on microorganisms such as cell types and basic physiology. It covers fundamentals of food microbiology, including factors that influence microbial growth and survival in foods and processing environments and types of organisms associated with foods and foodborne disease. One unit addresses strategies to control microorganisms in foods and processing environments. Another covers test methods and considerations and quality control in the laboratory.
The course also includes a unit on client complaint samples and foodborne illness investigations. If time permits, the curriculum will explore shelf life testing, validation, and challenge studies.
