Kiwi food workers get minimum safety training

NEW ZEALAND - One in five New Zealanders working in the food industry has had no training in food safety, according to a new survey.</b> <br><br> The survey was commissioned by the New Zealand Food Safety Authority (NZFSA), as part of its Domestic Food Review. <br><br> It found that most of those working in food processing, retail and the food service sector get only the bare minimum in basic food safety training. <br><br> And out of the 400 food businesses surveyed, just over 20 per cent of workers had no formal food safety training at all. <br><br> The most common form of training took no more than a day, and was often designed specifically to meet the base legislative requirements. <br><br> <i>Source: ap-foodtechnology</i>
