Hi everyone! I'm Dr. Lea Beltran Milan of Tarlac City, Philippines. A practicing food technologist for 15 years focusing on food safety and quality. I worked in the food industry for seven years, started as quality assurance staff and ended as Quality Management Divison Supervisor and at the same time as Research and Development Supervisor. From the food Industry, I transfered to academe doing extension services and teaching major subjects in Food Technology Department of Tarlac State University. Likewise as my part time job and to promote my advocy on food safety, I'm working as Food Safety Technical Head Consultant/Trainer for Safe Food Solutions-OHSEC, a private company here in the Philippines.
As extension service provider of the university,my task is mainly to conduct free technical consultancy servicesand trainings for micro enterprises engaged in food processing and food services on the field of food safety, quality contro and quality assurance and product development. Through undetaking I was able to come up a simplified approach of introducing the concept of food safety and quality, in the langauge, scope and resource capability of the micro entrepreneurs in the province. From the technical concept to practical applications good for them to adopt the application of food safety and quality principles in the workplaced!
Through this group , I hope to share my learnings , approaches , strategies and techniques that could help microenterprises in applying and promoting food safety and quality principles in their workplaces. Im looking forward also for the sharing of the fellow food safety and quality advocates under this group to help me inspire and motivate food micro entrepreneurs to emrace food safety and quality !
