Food Defence (VACCP/TACCP) Training

Food Defence – VACCP / TACCP Courses for all your needs

Are all of your current Food Defence team trained in Threat assessments/Food Defence principles? BRCGS V9 has a new clause 4.2.1 which states – Where personnel are engaged in threat assessments and food defence plans, the individual or team responsible shall understand potential food defence risks at the site. This shall include knowledge of both the site and the principles of food defence. Where there is a legal requirement for specific training this shall be in place.

Our one-day Food Defence: Getting Started course will take you through our methodology, endorsed by Professor Chris Elliott, which combines VACCP & TACCP into one easy, yet robust, vulnerability risk assessment. This course is aimed at delegates with no or very little experience in conducting Food Defence assessments – updated to BRCGS Issue 9.

Have you already got VACCP & TACCP Assessment but would like to make it more robust? Our 1 day Food Defence Refresher course will remind your team of the importance of, and ongoing need for thorough Food Defence controls, as well as finding ways to challenge your existing assessments to make them more robust.

And finally, do you need to spread the Food Defence message to the whole site? Our bespoke Food Defence Awareness course specialises in spreading the message of what food defence is and how individuals contribute to this.
