Ensuring Food Safety for a Growing Population

With increasing populations and global threats, the integrity and safety of global food chains has never been more at risk.

In many countries, simply getting enough to eat can be an issue, with poor quality food often contaminated with hazardous agents. In developed countries, pressure to deliver cheap, affordable food impacts quality and safety.

On this course, you will gain an advanced understanding of food safety issues and intervention approaches to be applied across the food supply chain, to help ensure a sustainable supply of safe, nutritious food meeting demand and improving human health.

This course covers techniques and research being applied and developed to improve food safety. The course is open to all, but aimed at learners at postgraduate level.

    This was an interesting course on a subject I knew almost nothing about. It was insightful enough to give me an understanding of the complexities of the global food system from a perspective of food security and supply chain integrity. It certainly has changed my view on the stuff in the stores and on what I put on my plate.
