Training Course Outline:

The petfood industry has seen some devastating petfood safety incidents in recent years and is continuously struggling with recalls and customer complaints.

Most often, decision makers in the field of petfood safety learn the science of risk assessment through human food courses and learning events.

This is often a reasonable solution, however; petfood is not human food and many safety aspects unique to the petfood industry are not adequately covered.

The course is suitable for decision makers in manufacturing of all petfoods, with the exception of raw foods, which will not be covered.

In this course, we will cover the essentials of petfood safety, including unique aspects such as nutritional inadequacy, mycotoxicosis, human pathogens transferred through petfood, etc.

Participants will be able to apply risk based thinking following the principles of HACCP and HARPC and learn from petfood case studies.
