About this training…
This food safety and GMP course is designed specifically for operators working in the manufacturing of dried products and is delivered on our online training dashboard.
In this training course, we will take you on a virtual tour of Thirsty Foods Ltd, who make a range of delicious dried goods.
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 mixing, processing and drying 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 dried foods, such as pasteurisation, sieving, metal detection, moisture control and much, much more!
We cover the topics you need...
Our training covers all the specific topics your operators need to understand.
How ABV impacts food safety
The amount of alcohol, in an alcoholic product is clearly important. It doesn’t take a genius to know that. And most people will know it’s a legal requirement. But do they know that it has an impact on food safety too?
This key element of food safety is explained. This is especially important when producing lower ABV product, or when processing non-alcoholic product, which is becoming more popular.
Glass control when bottling
Alcohol comes in many packaging formats, but one of the riskiest is bottling into glass. This makes it really important that we understand how this aspect of packing must be handled, including what to do if glass containers are broken.
Packaging into glass
Packing into glass is a high-risk packing format, so glass breakage needs to be strictly controlled. In the packing area these controls are explained in detail.
