The safety of our food supply is critical to maintaining our health and the viability of food businesses.
The Commonwealth’s Food and Agribusiness Growth Centre, Food Innovation Australia Ltd (FIAL), in partnership with the Australian Institute for Food Safety and Technology (AIFST), invites food-industry leaders to attend its online Food Safety Governance for Directors course.
Senior managers, executives and company Directors have a legal obligation to develop organisation-wide systems and organisational cultures that can ‘recognise, evaluate and prevent or mitigate food safety risk’, notes FIAL.
