Food Safety and Controls
The  Department of Food Science & Technology, University of Karachi , has announced one-year post graduate diploma in Food Safety and Controls.
According to the Department’s Chairman Prof Dr Abid Hasnain,  the course is being announced under the European Union funded trade related technical assistance TRTA-II programme and implemented by UNIDO. The program has been accredited by Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland, UK.  The admissions for the 2nd batch will commence from March 17, 2014. This program will be highly beneficial for those who are already serving Food Industries or are interested in food exports.
In Pakistan the food safety control systems are very weak. At present, the only dedicated food safety training courses being offered in Pakistan are HACCP and ISO-22000.
The PGD-Food Safety and controls being very comprehensive in its contents and curriculum will be more effective in producing technically sound and academically qualified export.
