Workshop Rationale


The course investigates food safety issues globally and compares the food safety problems in countries at different levels of economic development. A critical and in-depth knowledge of chemical, physical and microbiological health hazards in food is provided. It covers the methods and practice of techniques available for food analysis and its application to food safety assessment. Issues in designing, planning and implementing food safety protocols are discussed. Risk analysis is and HACCP is covered. The role of food inspection, standards and food legislation in public health is explored.
