Freshcare Training

Training

It is a requirement that all businesses participating in the Freshcare Food Safety & Quality program, have at least one business representative complete training.

Freshcare training ensures each participating business has a full understanding of the Code and program requirements; how they are applicable to their business and what needs to be implemented and prepared to demonstrate compliance at audit.

Your Trainer

With more than 8 years experience delivering a range of accredited and non-accredited training to adult learners, BFVG’s Industry Services Officer, Kylie Jackson will provide Freshcare Food Safety Training from either the BFVG office or your preferred location.

Her extensive background in career development and training will ensure the Freshcare modules are delivered in a precise and informative way that encourages discussion to ensure you leave with a full understanding of the requirements of the Freshcare standard. Kylie’s known linkages at all levels of industry also ensure you have access to key organisational stakeholders across the sector where required.


Implementation

Freshcare training prepares participants for integrating the program requirements into their business production and operating systems.

Training course materials include template record keeping documents and resource materials to provide assistance and further information.

Some elements of the FSQ4.2 Code require verification testing be completed. It is recommended that all verification testing be undertaken prior to audit.
