Workshop on “Good food manufacturing and hygiene practices and hygiene requirements for food storage”
The Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) is working on a “Regional Initiative for Promoting Small-Scale Renewable Energy Applications in rural areas of the Arab region (REGEND)”. This regional initiative is a Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) funded project and aims to improve the livelihood, economic benefits, social inclusion and gender equality of Arab rural communities particularly marginalized groups, by addressing energy poverty, water scarcity and vulnerability to climate change and other natural resources challenges in three targeted countries, namely Jordan, Lebanon and Tunisia.
In this context, ESCWA is organizing a Capacity-Building Workshop on “Good food manufacturing and hygiene practices and hygiene requirements for food storage”, in partnership with the Arab Organization for Agricultural Development (AOAD) and the Arab Federation for Food Industries (AFFI), to build the scientific and technical capacities of REGEND’s beneficiaries, on good manufacturing practices for dairy and jam products, personal hygiene, food safety and quality, public health pesticides, production costs accounting, integrated pest management for disease vectors, health requirements for workers in the food sector, agriculture and agricultural manufacturing, and preparing monitoring records through a simplified scientific and distinctive approach integrating lectures, exercises, and practical training.
The knowledge and skills acquired throughout the training, theoretically and practically, will enable the trainees to improve and expand their food manufacturing income-generating activities.
