Georgian College Launches Food Safety Regulatory Training for Entrepreneurs

Grey and Bruce Counties, in partnership with Georgian College and Simcoe County, are proud to announce the development of a first-of-its-kind curriculum. The Food Safety Regulatory Training course is a 2-day seminar supported by the Grey Bruce Health Unit and funded in part by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Rural Economic Development (RED) program.

The focus of this program is to provide food entrepreneurs, farmers and food retailers with the most up-to-date knowledge and tools to better understand the complexities of the highly regulated food sector.

The program will launch as a pilot on November 22 and 23rd in Owen Sound followed by two additional pilot deliveries scheduled at the Barrie and South Georgian Bay campuses in early 2015.

A special introductory price of $60 applies to these three cohorts only. Space is limited: be sure to register early!

See the Food Safety Regulations invite or visit for additional program, contact, and registration details.
