Course covers the management of allergens

The NZ Institute of Food Science & Technology is holding an important half-day course in December – a Toolkit for Managing Allergens in Your Food Manufacturing Operation. There are still spaces available and due to their popularity, extra sessions have been added.

It will be held in Christchurch on Tuesday 9 December and Auckland on Friday 12 December.

It will give an overview of allergens, legal and ethical responsibilities, discover danger points in their processes, and learn to control cross-contamination.

This course will be repeated in Hawke's Bay in the new year. Also repeated will be another entitled Weather the Product Recall Storm, which was presented in November. In that course, Lesley Steeples introduces tools and templates rto help companies put in place a simple but effective product withdrawl/recall programme. For further information go to their website here.
