A One Day Workshop
Primary Production Inspections on Farm
” Food and Feed Hygiene at Primary Producers-
A facilitated workshop for sharing experiences and challenges”
Cirencester, Gloucestershire, Wednesday 13th September
This one day workshop has been arranged by Food and Farming Compliance Ltd. to provide an update on Primary Production Inspections on Farms. This workshop is suitable for any authorised person who is responsible for administering and enforcing the provisions of Food/Feed Hygiene Legislation in relation to Primary Production on farms. It will be of benefit to experienced officers and also for the less experienced and those entering the professions as training and guidance.
In light of recent high level feed safety scares Local Authority officers need to be fully capable of investigating feed safety incidents and fully understand the controls in place.
The EU Food Hygiene Regulations extend the 'farm to fork' approach to food safety legislation and apply to food businesses throughout the supply chain.
The requirements are designed to help ensure that feed provided to animals is safe and can be traced in the event of a safety incident. This included farmers and growers, in many cases for the first time.
Farmers and growers, as primary producers, need to follow good practice and manage their operations in accordance with the legal requirements.
It will also be of importance for the staff of Quality Assurance Schemes.
