Have a food product idea or an existing food product and are looking for food science guidance and direction on safe food production, including state and federal regulatory requirements?

Concept To Consumer is our online course covering everything from food safety hazards through to packaging considerations. Concept To Consumer helps small-batch, large-scale, or co-manufacturing producers develop new and emerging products for commercial sale and scale. 

The NEXT ONLINE PROGRAMME will commence Tuesday, September 26, 2023

Who is this course for? Food or beverage manufacturers, co-manufacturers, chefs wanting to develop their own product range, artisan producers

How long is the course? The Online Programme includes 5 x 1.5 hour modules delivered over 7 weeks; the exact session dates & timings are dependent on the elective modules you select.

What will it cover? This course will equip you with the resources to protect you and your business against the risk of product recall, batch spoiling, and shelf-life variations. The sessions are interactive and we encourage you to ask any questions you may have; for example, common questions often arise around health claims, labelling specifications, nutritional calculations, date marking and recall procedures.

Whether you’re a small-batch artisan producer, chef or large-scale manufacturer, you’ll be able to select the modules best suited to your needs.
