In partnership with Grocery Manufacturers Association’s (GMA) Science and Education Foundation, SSAFE (Safe Supply of Affordable Food Everywhere) and the Shanghai Food Safety Federation, GFSP has helped to establish sustainable, self-sufficient food safety training resources for small and medium enterprise (SMEs) food processors in Shanghai, which can eventually be scaled up throughout China. The program supports a virtual training center from existing physical facilities and offers a suite of programs to help suppliers progressively improve and eventually become fully compliant with domestic and international food safety standards.
The China SFSTP has helped to refine the fundamental approach for establishing sustainable in-country food safety training resources. Specifically, in partnership with the Bor S. Luh Center at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the program has established an on-line HACCP certificate program in Chinese for industry, government and academia aligned with CODEX standards and the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Global Markets Protocol and related specifications.
