Workshop on food safety at KOM from Monday

MUSCAT: Xeem, an incubated company at the National Business Centre (NBC), is all set to organise a workshop on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) Food Safety Management from August 21 to 23. The three-day programme will be held at NBC in the Knowledge Oasis Muscat (KOM).
This workshop comes after the success of Food Safety Management (ISO 22000) workshop held mid of this year by Xeem. Fatma al Riyami,
Chief Executive Officer of Xeem, stated that companies dealing with food being food producer, manufacturer or caterer need to adopt systems and standard to strongly eliminate food safety hazards. Taking into account that food safety is one of top priorities for any food industry company, this workshop, therefore, will give an opportunity for participants to build their organisation’s confidence and customer confidence.
At the workshop, the participants will learn modern methods of food safety and quality control, known as HACCP. Applying HACCP ensures food production in compliance to international standards, through an integrated system to ensure control of all production processes towards a safe food, microbiologically, physically and chemically.
“We believe that acquiring effective adoption of international standards and world class practices shall assist in equipping SMEs in facing emerging challenges through innovative and practical solutions towards creating a healthy and sustainable economy. Hence, such programmes help put committed organisations on track towards excellence and true success,” Al Riyami pointed out. — ONA
