General Information

Overview

Every year, millions of Australians suffer illness associated with food and it has been estimated that every Australian will experience an episode of foodborne illness every four years. In this unit, students will learn about methods of safe food preparation and the importance of food safety in commercial and regulatory contexts. Students will learn to identify common food contaminants, the sources of these contaminants and the epidemiology of food-borne illness using case studies. During residential school, skills will be developed in the identification and evaluation of food safety hazards and ways to control these hazards. An important skill developed in the unit is the application of Australian food legislation to the risk assessment of food premises. Students will also develop an appreciation of emerging issues such as food security, food allergies and intolerances, genetically modifed foods and organic food production.
