Food and beverage producers can benefit from additional knowledge and skills to help them ensure regulatory compliance and also to maximise productivity, with an innovative user training programme from Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection.
Designed for machine operatives and quality managers using the manufacturer’s checkweighing, metal detection, x-ray and vision inspection systems, the new modular courses provide structured, standardised practical and theoretical guidance in operating the technologies and using them to meet both employee safety and food quality standards. At the same time, it will also provide the skills to minimise maintenance and changeover downtime to enhance line efficiency. In doing so, it will enable producers to provide consumers with the highest quality products, safeguarding brand reputation, as well as lowering operating costs to protect profit margins.
Set in a classroom environment, the modular learning programme will give machine operatives comprehensive theoretical education in the latest requirements for compliance with guidelines approved by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), such as the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standards Version 7, as well as other legislation governing product quality, such as the International Featured Standard (IFS) and UK Weights and Measures Act. They will also receive extensive practical, on-site training in operating Product Inspection technologies, and in using them to maximise production line performance and ensuring product quality control.
