Make it Safe: A Guide to Food Safety

Posted by:  | 

CSIRO Food and Nutritional Sciences has released a book – Make It Safe: A Guide to Food Safety – which provides small-scale food manufacturers with a practical guide to controlling food safety hazards.

 Make it Safe

All people involved with preparation of food for the commercial or retail market need a sound understanding of the food safety risks associated with their specific products and, importantly, how to control these risks.

Failure to control food safety hazards can have devastating consequences for not only the consumer, but also the food manufacturer.

This book is aimed at those small-scale businesses already in or considering entering food manufacture.

Those already operating a small business will develop a better understanding of key food safety systems, while those who are in the 'start-up' phase will gain knowledge essential to provide their business with a solid food safety foundation while also learning about Australian food regulations relevant to food safety.

The book's content will also be useful for students studying food technology or hospitality who wish to seek employment in the manufacturing industry or are planning on establishing their own manufacturing operation.

Illustrated in full colour throughout, Make It Safe outlines the major food safety hazards – microbial, chemical and physical – which must be controlled when manufacturing all types of food products.

The control of microbial hazards is given special emphasis as this is the greatest challenge to food manufacturers.

Small businesses make up around two-thirds of all business in Australia's food and beverage manufacturing industry.

Topics covered include:

  • Premises
  • Equipment
  • Staff
  • Product Recipes
  • Raw Ingredients
  • Shelf Life
  • Labelling
  • Food Recalls

Make It Safe (RRP AU$39.95) will be available at all good bookstores and through CSIRO PUBLISHING.
