Microbiology for the food industry – producing high quality and safe foods.
This two -day course is designed for people who have some prior knowledge of microbiology and wish to gain a deeper insight into specific problems related to the microbiological safety and spoilage of foods. The material will be delivered through lectures, case studies, practical demonstrations and some hands-on laboratory work.
The course is delivered by scientists from AFBI at their Newforge Lane facility in Belfast, allowing for a practical element of the course to be delivered.
