    Very thorough course

    Covered lots of aspects of our daily tasks. Met the expectations and even more!
    Whole course was very helpful and enjoyable. The in-factory exercise was very helpful as it helps to put the knowledge immediately into practice.
    Anita is great at delivering the course, made our group feel comfortable and it was easy to listen to her. Answered all questions and passed us some of her passion to food safety. Great time.
