ProcessSafe is designed to increase awareness and knowledge of food safety and safe food handling procedures for food processors. While targeted at self-employed entrepreneurs/food processors and entry-level line workers in micro- to small-scale food processing establishments, the course may also be of use to any processor as part of their onboarding of new entry-level employees.
