TO secure safety of their produced products, educate its workers, and strengthen its food-safety implementation, RGK Food Products underwent a Seminar-Workshop on current Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) conducted by DOST Batangas at Padre Garcia Multipurpose Cooperative Inc.’s Function Room, Padre Garcia, Batangas recently.
All employees directly and indirectly involved in the production partook in the activity. They were educated with guidelines that they should adhere to while performing particular operations in accordance with the principles of GMP.
Furthermore, the seminar focused on the standards set by the Philippine Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Discussion on GMP regulations which require that the processes by which products are made, as well as the final products, are safe took place during the seminar.
Topics such as Food Safety, GMP, Food Hazards (i.e., biological, chemical, physical and allergens), Cross-contamination, Personnel Hygiene, Food Contact Surface, Pest Control, Good Hygiene Practices and Food preparation were the topics covered during the seminar-workshop. Several workshop activities were also conducted to provide participants demonstrations and simulate situations during food preparation which included proper handwashing using the Glo-Germ Kit.
