e-SAFE will develop a comprehensive training curriculum for chefs, kitchen staff, food handlers, outlet managers and agri-food processing employees within the EU to increase their knowledge and skills in order to prevent the impact of food-borne diseases on public health.
More specifically, the aim of the training package is to provide up-to-date knowledge and to improve the food handlers’ skills, enabling them to reconsider
erroneous practices during food processing, and food safety related to COVID-19.
Training will be oriented towards major emerging/re-emerging, non-easily recognized and usually ignored food hazards.
The target group will be motivated to improve or change daily industrial practice (including many erroneous practices during meal preparation) through multiple means (“face-to-face” interactive seminars, e-learning platform and website with offline and online tools and materials). By this training, we anticipate that previously mismanaged and not adequately prevented hazards will be tackled appropriately. Outlet managers in SMEs will also become familiar with the principles of HACCP as well as with tools and models and methods for the effective implementation of food safety management.
DURATION: From September 2020 to June 2023
