Training Program on Food Safety Prerequisite Programs and HACCP Systems

Date: May and June 2012
Location: Beijing, China

University (MSU), in partnership with the World Bank and the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum, Food Safety Cooperation Forum Partnership Training Institute Network (APEC/FSCF/PTIN) conducted a training program on general food safety management and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) concepts in China in May and June 2012. This training program featured blended learning techniques and included a one-month eLearning phase (May, 2012) followed by a six-day practical training phase that was conducted face-to-face in Beijing during the week of June 11-17, 2012.

Subsequently, Shanghai University expressed interest in replicating the program for use at their institution. UNIDO has also expressed interest in incorporating the HACCP program into an 18 month program they have established in Malaysia and Africa with potential replication in Indonesia as well. By December, the HACCP modules will be translated in Turkish and replicated in Turkey. The HACCP program will be the first program to be placed on the Global Food Safety Partnership IT platform to be made freely available and will also be available on the PTIN website.
