Eurofins Food Safety Systems and the Food Safety and Quality Program at McGill University (Monteal, Quebec) have announced a new joint agreement that will provide co-branded public training for the Canadian food manufacturing industry.

The courses include the highly sought-after Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Preventive Controls Qualified Individual Training as well as Global Food Safety Initiative benchmarked standard training to Safe Quality Food and British Retail Consortium. The partnership makes sense because both Eurofins and McGill University share a common interest in the success of the Canadian food manufacturing industry.

"We are proud to partner with McGill," says Gary Smith, director of food safety systems for Eurofins. "We believe this partnership is a perfect fit for Canadian food manufacturers that need to develop a comprehensive food safety plan."

The first course offering, the FSMA Preventive Controls course for Human Food, will be held June 27th-29th at McGill's Macdonald campus. Additional courses will follow this fall.

McGill University’s Food Safety and Quality Program was established in 2011 to train students, perform research, and educate the food industry on emerging food safety trends and approaches.
