About this training…

This food safety and GMP course is designed specifically for operators working in the manufacturing of confectionery and is delivered on our online training dashboard.

In this training course, we will take you on a virtual tour of Sweetie Inc., who make a range of confectionery.

You’ll arrive at site as a new employee and will be sent by security to reception to sign in, before you complete your induction with Barbara. You’ll meet the friendly site team, starting with Karmen who’ll take you on a tour of the external areas, before you enter the staff entrance and look around the facilities. When you’ve got changed and entered the factory you’ll follow the process; looking at how materials are received and prepared for production. Your visit will take you through the sugar cooking, depositing, drying and panning areas with Ali, Aaliyah and Ben. You’ll pop into the washroom to see Steph and then head into the packing area to meet Maryam to learn all about the packaging, labelling and sealing processes. Finally, Terry and Ste will show you around the warehouse and dispatch area.

As you move around the site, you’ll learn about food safety and GMP relevant to the production of confectionery, such as metal detection, water activity and much, much more!

Confectionery Trays

Preventing foreign bodies through effective GMP

There are key controls that help to minimise the risk of foreign bodies, including how a rack should be stacked and unstacked. Foreign body controls are a main focus for confectionery processing.

Quality Station

Quality control using quality attribute sheets

Due to the high sugar levels there is a low risk of micro contamination in confectionery, therefore quality is a key aspect to focus on. The course looks into the use of quality attribute sheets to ensure that eh product meets the customer requirements and minimises complaints.

Metal Detection Confectionery

Foreign body control using metal detection

Metal detection is the last point of control for metal foreign bodies and the use of detectors are explained in the training. This includes carrying out the test and what to do if it fails.
