Training tips for food industry.

THE North East England Food & Drink Group (NEEFDG) has announced details of a new programme of flexible training support for the region's food and drink producers.

Developed and delivered on behalf of NEEFDG by HSF Training of Birtley, the series of courses includes scheduled events around the region, combined with the latest in distance learning methods for producers in remote rural locations.

The training on offer includes courses on the essentials of food safety and hygiene. Producers can also find out about the latest legislation relevant to the food and drink sector, helping them to ensure that they continue to meet legal requirements as they grow their businesses. If producers are unsure which courses are most appropriate, NEEFDG and HSF Training are available to provide advice on which will give the greatest benefit to their business.

Along with a schedule of training events in the region, all of the courses can be held at the businesses' premises or site for no extra cost, providing there is a minimum of eight delegates in attendance..

The distance learning package relates to courses on food safety, and health and safety.

Sandy Duncan, lead programme manager of the North East England Food & Drink Group, said: "The new training programme forms part of ongoing NEEFDG activity designed to increase skills, promote the industry as an appealing and progressive career choice, and add significant value to the sector.

The courses available give food and drink businesses the opportunity to develop and strengthen their operations, which is crucial during these challenging economic times." Judith Holliday of HSF Training adds: "All food businesses are legally required to implement health and safety measures as well as food safety. Some producers don't realise what training is necessary and this can prevent them from developing their businesses." The scheduled programme of events runs until May, with events also being held in Birtley.
