About this training…

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

In this training course, we will take you on a virtual tour of Package Me Up! Ltd, who make a range of clever packaging products.

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 processing and printing 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 packaging, such as glass control, print control and much, much more!

We cover the topics you need...

Our training covers all the specific topics your operators need to understand.

Functional integrity

Functional integrity

Packaging plays an important role food safety. This means that packaging with specific functionality, must do exactly what it should. In the course, we explain this and provide examples to bring it to life. For example, explaining how film used for modified atmosphere packing must meet specification and the implications to the finished product and the consumer, if it doesn’t.

How poor printing can cause food safety problems

How poor printing can cause food safety problems

Where printing isn’t correct, this can have many implications including food safety issues from allergen labelling. The course explains this in detail and how print controls are used to ensure that the right print is used.

Right product, right pack

Right product, right pack – how it applies to packaging too

Food manufacturing sites have to control the product and the packaging, to make sure that they get the right product in the right pack – because if they don’t it could cause allergen issues. This impacts packaging production sites too. For example, a if a printed plastic pot gets mixed up with another run, this means that the site will fill that pot with the wrong product – as it shouldn’t be there. This is explained, so that the operator knows how important it is to clear the line from previous packaging, before they start a new run.
