This FREE half-day workshop is targeted at butchers and food operators working in butcher shops.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) protects consumers by leading a collaborative food safety community to continuously raise food standards and create a culture of excellence.

All butchers need to comply with food law and their staff must be trained commensurate with their work activity. If you own or work in a butcher shop you need to be knowledgeable and skilled in food legislation to ensure the products you sell are safe for consumers. This workshop will assist you to comply with the rules that govern food safety and traceability.

The agenda includes an introduction to the FSAI and the resources we have available to help you comply. The sessions will provide you with the most up to date information on what you need to know about shelf life, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and vacuum packing. In addition, there will be presentations to help you understand how to manage allergens in your shop and food additives laws.

It will be an interactive session and we would welcome any questions you might have around any aspects of food legislation.

Please note: this workshop is NOT intended for food industry researchers or food training trainers/consultants.
