Food and Beverage Processing Project

A lot has changed in the food and beverage processing world in the past decade. Consumers care more about where their food comes from, what is in it and how it is packaged. Industry is responding to the needs of the consumer, using new technologies and systems to improve the quality and diversity of products.

The industry now has a greater need for skills and knowledge about traceability, risk management, food fraud, contamination, allergens, recall procedures, sustainability, health and safety, and automation and digitalised manufacturing. These skills are required across the production chain, for those on the processing line, through to labeling, packaging, and bottling.

Skills Impact are managing a project that will review the Certificate I, II and III in Food Processing and Certificate II and III in Food Processing (Sales) and the units of competency within them. This review will consider many key changes in the industry, from regulatory changes affecting food safety and manufacturing processes to trends in what consumers want to eat and drink.

ISACNT is looking to connect with Northern Territory stakeholders to provide comment on the existing qualifications and the units of competency within.

Feedback is due by Friday 7th June 2019.
