About

This Food Safety and Quality Management, PGDip/MSc/MSc By Research programme from the University of Greenwich provides graduates with an insight into measures that are required to provide a supply of safe and wholesome food to consumers globally. A wide spectrum of food safety and quality management issues are addressed following the farm to fork approach.

Topics covered include: good governance and national control systems; food inspection and testing services; legislation and private standards; and management of food safety and quality within the supply chain as well as in hotels and restaurants.

Students also acquire a knowledge of the design and management of safety and quality management systems based upon risk analysis, e.g. Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), ISO 9001:2008 designed to meet the requirements of national and international legislation and private standards.

Individual courses are offered on a stand-alone basis. These are attended by professionals working in the food industry. This gives our postgraduate students the opportunity to interact with and learn from a range of practitioners.
