Food safety is an essential element if you want to achieve a smooth chain of operations in any agri-food business. Any link of that chain carries a responsibility to ensure a safe food preparation in order to protect consumer's good health and to stay away from the risk of food borne illness.


Food handling training within the business must meet certain bylaw's standards.

Bylaw states that any operator who prepares food that is to be sold, regardless if he possesses a MAPAQ permit or not, must make sure one or more of his employees has been trained in food handling.

Thus, regulations aims at enhancing:

  • Perception of health related risky situations in foodhandling and preparation
  • Capacity to determine ways to master risks

Manager's trainging is designed for the person responsible of controling hygiene and food safety in the business. This may be the owner or a delegate.

As for Food handler's training it is aimed at employees who handle food on a daily basis within the food business.
