We want to train and develop staff in the fresh produce supply chain in a range of technical aspects. We want to be specific to the fresh produce supply chain as that’s where we have experience. We want to develop training solutions that are applicable and beneficial to fresh producer growers, packer, processors and users.
We want to help develop the next generation of fresh produce technical staff. For our food safety course, we won’t talk about prawn sandwiches, or roasting chickens, we’ll talk about soil, manure and irrigation water.
We will be developing a range of training material to cover growers, packhouse, processors and manufacturers. We’re starting off with some food safety courses that will be along shortly, but…. We’ve also got courses lined up for HACCP, microbiology for growers, water quality, fresh produce awareness in supply chains, and principles of processing.
We will focus specifically on fresh produce.
We want to develop staff within the fresh produce industry in technical skills.
