The Australian Institute of Food Science & Technology (AIFST) is holding a Toolbox Talk on 5 April to provide an overview of the Food Standards Australia New Zealand Compendium of Microbiological Criteria that was released in October 2016.
Microbiological criteria are applied throughout the food chain process to ensure that food safety controls are working as intended.
The half-day talk will be a practical session, intended to ensure those working in food services in the regulatory, manufacturing, quality assurance and research fields will have a better understanding of why FSANZ released the compendium and how to apply it to their businesses.
Attendees will come away from the day with a better understanding of the purpose and application for the compendium, the implications for the food industry and supplier requirements from a microbiological perspective.
