The food industry’s outbreaks of E. coli, salmonella, food poisoning, etc., have raised the profile of food safety in not only consumers but manufacturers. Ensuring food safety in your manufacturing practices consists of following various food quality and safety systems and complying with federal, provincial and municipal regulations.

Larger companies have the resources to train their employees to ensure food quality and safety. However, small to medium sized companies are challenged with time and resources when it comes to training new and current employees. This becomes a bigger hurdle for food processors in rural areas. Saskatchewan food processors need to be equipped with the tools to manufacture a safe and quality product in order to compete in the global marketplace.

The Food Centre has put in place various training options for agribusiness to choose from to best suit their operational needs.

  • Sanitation - A Defensive Approach Video 

    Food safety and sanitation is an essential part of the food industry. Proper equipment and facility sanitation is an important component to any food safety system and helps to reduce the chance of cross contamination or food recalls.  The “Sanitation – A Defensive Approach” video is an educational training video which provides food processors with proper cleaning and sanitation at the plant to reduce the risk of contamination of food products during processing. The video highlights sanitation set up, sanitation process and other sanitation methods.
