With microbiological criteria a key part of product specification, this AIFST toolbox talk co-hosted by NSW Food Authority is imperative for those working in the regulatory, manufacturing, quality assurance and research fields.

The workshop will be reviewing the FSANZ Compendium of Microbiological Criteria for Foods that was released in October 2016. Attendees will come away from the day with a better understanding of the purpose and application for the Compendium, what the implications are for the food industry, and supplier requirements from a microbiological perspective.
