NEW: Virtual Training & Webinars

These Microbiology themed webinars will commence with a presentation by Company Microbiologist Andy Muirhead covering a wide range of industry related topics. An example of the Webinar that we cover is the - Testing of finished products and incoming raw materials can be a major cost burden to any technical budget, but optimisation of testing ensures that the analysis meets all of the legislative requirements and addresses all of the appropriate food safety and quality concerns, whilst avoiding unnecessary or irrelevant testing for your individual product matrix.

The sensory webinars will be hosted by Company Sensory Study Manager Audrey L’Yvonnet who will commence the Sensory themed webinars with a presentation on cooking validations. The validation of the on-pack cooking instructions is the safety control step for raw products which do not have another earlier step to sufficiently control the microbial pathogen risk. Cooking validations are carried out to provide consumers with the correct cooking instructions, information and re-heating guidelines for ready meals and food products to ensure that they are safe and of the best possible quality when consumed.
