AU: Food safety training gains global momentum
Australian Institute of Food Safety: Recent results from a global survey have shown food safety training is rapidly growing and currently almost 40 per cent of all training organisations offer it in some form. Described as ‘one of today’s most pressing public health priories,’ food safety is continuously being recognised as an area that needs multiple levels of education and a clear and accurate core skills framework.
The survey, designed by the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST), was developed along with the Global Food Safety Curricula Initiative (GFSCI). Through global education, this Initiative aims to helps battle poor food safety standards around the world and create a strong foundation with which to teach people in the food safety industry.
