  • Academic Title
    Food Safety and Quality Management, PGDip/MSc/MSc by Research
  • Course description
    Food safety is a global issue of increasing concern for governments, food producers, food processors and handlers, as well as consumers. Safe, wholesome food supplies play a key role in ensuring the health of populations worldwide. Food safety is achieved by improving knowledge of the causal agents of food-borne illness, providing information on how to control these agents and, ultimately, reducing the occurrence of sources of food hazards that result in morbidity and mortality. Advances in the technology of food handling allow food products to be stored for longer periods and to be transported over longer distances. Effective quality management requires a thorough understanding of this technology.

    These programmes enable students to develop an awareness of the many issues associated with ensuring a safe and wholesome food supply. Students will also gain an understanding of the design and implementation of Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS), based upon the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) concept. The Royal Institute of Public Health's (RIPH) Intermediate Certificate in Applied HACCP principles is included as part of the programme.

    The PGDip/MSc Food Safety and Quality Management (Postharvest Technology) allows specialisation in the technology of handling plant products and is available for students with the appropriate background as a specialist route. The route forms part of the named award on successful completion of the programme.

    The MSc by Research Food Safety and Quality Management programme is aimed at students with the appropriate background and interest in research, fulfilling the requirements for the degree by undertaking an extended research project and a limited number of taught courses.
