About this training…

This training is the food industry’s most up-to-date version, of the old-fashioned Basic Food Hygiene training or Level 2 Food Safety training.

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

In this training course, we will take you on a virtual tour of The Crisp & Crunch Company, who make a range of mouth watering snacks and cereals 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, frying, extrusion and tumbling 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 snacks and cereals, such as metal detection, modified atmosphere, spoilage and much, much more!

We cover the topics you need...

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

Frying for quality rather than food safety

Frying for quality rather than food safety

When you’re processing snacks such as popcorn or crisps, microbiological safety isn’t a huge concern, because you can’t make the product without it being heat treated correctly. Therefore, heat treatment is applied principally for quality purposes. The course explains this and focuses on ensuring that the quality of the product meets specification.

Authenticity claims in snacks and cereals

Authenticity claims in snacks and cereals

Ensuring that the product in the pack, meets the claims on the pack is important to consumers today. The topic of authenticity is explained and how materials which carry claims must be labelled and segregated to prevent mix ups.

Optical sorting

Optical sorting

An optical sorter is a valuable piece of kit used to inspect produce, to remove foreign bodies and it can be used to remove poor quality materials. This cool piece of kit is explained, what it can do, how it works and what monitoring needs to happen.
