We can design a sensory course to meet your sensory team’s requirements and products.

The second part of the course focuses on the testing methodology itself, breaking down methodologies individually. Conducting these tests in exercises using your own products will prime your future panel of how these tests will be conducted.

What Our Customers Say

The training was extremely beneficial and has assisted us in initiating facility and process modifications, now that there is a better understanding across the teams of how listeria behaves. This course was particularly helpful in giving people context around this microbe and also the confidence in understanding what they can do in their everyday role to help manage the risks.
