Course Description

Food Safety is considered of paramount importance and cross-cutting activity within globally recognized food safety parameters to mitigate the risks in the supply chain management ensuring to comply with relevant regulations for protecting consumers rights and maintaining sustainable businesses. Food Safety issues can be addressed by improving the understanding regarding regulatory requirements, risk management strategies, and capacity building of the operational and managerial personnel involved in effective supply chain management. The industry must respond to the international best practices and adapt them for their supply chain management. Food Safety measures are linked with; GAP: Good Agricultural Practice; GDP: Good Distribution Practice; GHP: Good Hygiene Practice and GMP: Good Manufacturing Practice. For Pakistan, the Pure Food Ordinance 1960 consolidates and amends the law concerning the preparation and the sale of foods. It aims to ensure the purity of food being supplied to people in the market and, therefore, provides for preventing adulteration. In addition to other provisions, under section 22(2), the sale of food or beverages that are contaminated, not prepared hygienically, or served in utensils that are not hygienic or clean is an offense.
