Customised Food Safety Training

Food Safe customises food safety training for companies across the primary sectors including (Dairy, Meat, Seafood & Produce) food processing, food manufacture, supermarkets and retail with the aim of measuring improvement. Following an internal audit, Food Safe Trainers identify a range of training areas for management to choose from.

This video explains how Food Safe collaborates with companies to deliver food safety training: 

Training options include:

  • Food safety
  • HACCP
  • Quality
  • Packaging and production processes
  • Health & safety
  • Continuous improvement
  • Supplier and regulatory requirements
  • Lower non-compliances and hand-held technology

Some examples of customized training, from projects Food Safe has been involved with are:

  • Roll out of hand-held technology (replacing a paper based system) linked to SAP, through the entire operations & distribution network across New Zealand for a Global FMCG giant. Food Safe delivered on training and the go-live timelines. This generated cost savings to the client of approximately half a million dollars in the just 6 months.
  • Advanced HACCP and Audit skills training linked to FSSC 22000 (global certification standard) in New Zealand’s biggest such roll out to date. This certification scheme raises the profile of this client as well as New Zealand Dairy Products and assures global customers of world class Food Safety Management Systems.
  • Allergen training for a well-known New Zealand seafood brand. This improved external audit scores and increased employee awareness about allergens as well as opened up the opportunity for diversification of products.
  • Advanced Root Cause Analysis (RCA) skills for an leading and innovative New Zealand based exporter. This improved both analysis and reporting standards, saving the Compliance Manger valuable time and significant resources.
  • Training of nurses and mid-wives about food safety best practice, including managing the risk from pathogens such as Chronobacter Sakazakii, while caring for babies. This further inproved the standard of all in-house care.
  • Advanced food safety, health & safety and literacy training for supermarket operations. This increased employee understanding of their roles and responsibilities as well as reduced third party audit non-compliances to record lows.
  • Advanced HACCP training for an upmarket supermarket chain owner. This increased management & owners governance and risk management systems.
  • Customized HACCP and Food Safety Plan implementation training for a Global 5 Star hotel chain with a New Zealand footprint. This faciltated the roll-out of an MPI approved FSP across the group, improving the risk mangement of food for hotel guests.
  • After being handpicked, Food Safe customized training for the biggest privately owned super-yacht to ever visit New Zealand. This minimisied risks for the yachts passengers and billionaire owners.
