- WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The food industry plays an integral part in protecting the nation’s food infrastructure. As part of our role in protecting the food supply, a business should have a plan to prevent intentional contamination from acts intended to cause small and wide-scale harm to public health. This includes acts of terrorism targeting the food supply.
The aim of this training is to provide food handlers with a basic overview of food defense. The training also covers different strategies that can be applied to prevent key threats from occurring within a food business.
