New Food Safety Training Program at Georgian College

FREE Session to Introduce New Food Safety Training Program in Development!

Grey County and Georgian College are pleased to announce the development of a new curriculum for food entrepreneurs, created and supported in partnership with Bruce County and Simcoe County, and with input from the Grey Bruce Health Unit and other industry advisors. The Food Safety Training for Business Owners course will support the training needs of small- and medium-sized food businesses adding value to agricultural products, and those hoping to start or expand food-related businesses in Grey Bruce and surrounding areas.
