Annotation -
The course focuses on understanding the basic principles of hygiene and sanitation carried out generally in food production plants and in control laboratories. Specific applications are demonstrated in the form of following examples: of dairy and fat industries; of meat industry and meat and canned products; of beverage industry; of industry of mill, bakery, confectioner, sugar and starch products, including industrial production of chocolate and long life bakery foods. The subject builds on the basic knowledge of hygiene and sanitation and applied food microbiology as well. The subject explains the hygienic connection with the application of quality management systems (GHP, GMP, HACCP) into the food industry.
