Safeguarding food safety is one of the most important challenges for dairy manufacturers.
While implementation of HACCP-based food safety programs and good manufacturing practices focus on managing critical food hazards where and when they occur, your overall approach and attitude to food safety is equally important.
A strong food safety culture ‒ shared values, attitudes, competencies, and behaviours that determine the commitment to deliver safe and suitable food ‒ is essential. It must be led by management, with the commitment and support of all personnel.
The Dairy Food Safety Victoria (DFSV) seminar and workshop explored the benefits of an effective food safety culture and how to establish it in your business.
