Enterprise proponent groups undergo food safety training
by Rigi May Copatan and Elvu Tacquio

Thirty farmer-members from various proponent groups of ongoing enterprise subprojects in Benguet and Mountain Province implemented under the Department of Agriculture’s Philippine Rural Development Project (DA-PRDP) participated in the basic food safety training and good manufacturing practices (GMP) held from March 26 to 28 at City Travel Hotel, Baguio City.

The PRDP through its Social and Environmental Safeguards Unit conducted the training in coordination with the Department of Science and Technology-CAR.

Jamie Beth Galian of DOST said employees directly engaged in the manufacturing activities will be trained in accordance to the principles of GMP.

“One of the objectives of GMP is to comply with the provisions of the Food Safety Act of 2013, which strengthens the food safety regulatory system in the country to protect consumers in terms of health and facilitate market access of local foods and food products,” she said.

Almost half of the approved and ongoing enterprise subprojects funded and implemented under the PRDP in the region are on food production. As recommended by the World Bank during the previous implementation support mission, capability trainings for proponent groups should be continuously conducted for them to be trained on food safety and proper waste management.

Galian further discussed the GMP guidelines and policies in relation to the premises of the production area, plant construction and design, equipment, sanitation, process control, chemical control, quality management, testing of reprocessed products, testing of returned goods, laboratory facilities and control, documentation, quality audits, warehouse and distribution, receiving and shipping, recall and traceability, retention of sample, and subcontracting of manufacture.

The participants were also oriented on the Food Safety Act, responsibilities of food business operators, food safety hazards, and the licensing requirements for food establishments.
