Reshape your packaging materials with global standards
In recent years, due to environmental changes such as the expansion of overseas production and increasing uncertainties, safe and healthy food packaging throughout the supply chain from food preparation, packaging, transportation, distribution, retailing, food packaging materials paper, plastic, ceramics, glass, metals, cardboards etc. must be compliance to the global standards in order to protect the consumer safety and for sustainable development.
A safe and healthy supply of adequate quality of food is essential important for sustaining humanity and quality of human life. Direct or indirect physical, biological or chemical contamination of food or food packaging materials not only endanger the health of consumer but also cause a major threat to the global supply chain across the globe. Therefore, global legislation is needed to ensure that the packaging materials used to handle or protect food do not become a source of food contamination.
This course emphasised clear communication of food safety concepts, hazards, preventive measures, food packaging materials, international standards, auditing, effective use of corrective action, and follow-up to ensure toward successful attainment of company business and food safety objectives and also helped to focus on design, sanitation, operation, and monitoring of food handling and manufacturing areas to reduce the risk of contamination of foods from pathogens.
