Food- based CVs Upgrade their GMP Knowledge and Food Packaging Skills
A total of twenty- two ( 22) representatives from ten ( 10) craft villages ( CVs) attended the Good Manufacturing Practices ( GMP) and Introduction to Food Packaging held last June 17- 18, 2009.
The training was ﬁ lled with lectures/input sessions, interspersed with workshops and exercises. Practical detection of food hazard and demonstration of proper food handling deepened the participants’ appreciation of the GMP.
The second part of the training focused on the basics of packaging, particularly on labeling. Samples of correct labeling were shared to the participants and linked its importance to food safety.
