Food Safety

Food Safety Training and Teaching in the United Kingdom and Europe

Publication Date Jan 1, 2015


Abstract A number of high-profile product safety events and recalls have heightened public attention to the safety, provenance, and security of the products that they consume and use; for example, the recent horse meat crisis. Supply chains have become increasingly complex, so traceability and the testing of products have become priorities. We also need to meet the challenge of providing a sustainable and secure supply of safe, nutritious, and affordable high-quality food (Global Food Security Strategic Plan, 2011-2016). Developments in food science and technology have the potential to transform food security, safety, and quality. Thus, the food industry faces these short-term challenges and the long-term challenge of providing for a growing world population when climate change will make food supply ever more critical. While the large companies in the supply chain have the knowledge and resources to cope with these challenges, staff in small and medium enterprises often have major gaps in their expertise. This chapter will discuss the use of a case method teaching strategy in which students must apply their knowledge to solve real-life situations in the delivery of food safety training and teaching at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels in the United Kingdom and Europe. Qualitative and quantitative data from student feedback will be used to inform suggested improvements in delivery and student engagement in both teaching and training scenarios.
