Companies in the food industry bear a great responsibility towards their customers for the safety of their products. The tasks involved for the prevention of hazards are complex and require specialised knowledge. In addition to technical aspects, well-trained employees form the basis for product safety during all stages of production, processing and distribution. WESSLING offers you support at this point through training and seminars - both on legal requirements and complex certification standards.
We also offer all training courses at your site as in-house seminars, which are tailored to your internal company or industry-specific requirements. In this way, we enable your employees to be fit for daily practice.
At present the WESSLING Academy provides the following seminars:
HACCP in practice
The preventive system HACCP, short for Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points, is at the centre for safe food and its value-adding processes. HACCP for food safety is a legal requirement for every food business and requires a hazard analysis or risk assessment that is appropriate to each individual company. In addition, a HACCP concept is a mandatory part of an IFS, BRC and/or FSSC certification.
IFS Broker - New Version 3
The requirements for commercial agencies (brokers) are complex. If, for example, there are trading activities for food retail, certification according to the International Featured Standard (IFS) is almost always required. In addition to its implementation and maintenance, the preparation of a vulnerability analysis for food fraud and participation in an unannounced audit process poses additional challenges to retail companies.
Basic training in sensory evaluation
The sensory evaluation of products is an important and central element of quality assurance. Get to know the basics of sensory evaluation with us and immediately apply your newly acquired knowledge in practice in our in-house sensory evaluation laboratory.
Food fraud in practice
Cases of product and food fraud are continuously increasing. The food industry, trade and logistics should take a risk-oriented view of their existing supplier and service provider relationships. Industry-specific quality management standards such as IFS, BRC or FSSC also require you to protect yourself preventively against product or food fraud, based on a documented vulnerability analysis.
IFS Food - New Version 7
The demands on food producing companies are high. For example, if a company supplies the food retail trade, certification according to the International Featured Standard (IFS) is almost always required. In addition to its implementation and maintenance, the new, unannounced audit procedure poses additional challenges for companies.
With your participation in our seminars, you acquire proof of the legally prescribed training requirements and relevant certification standards (IFS / BRC / FSSC).
