The Centre for Professional Studies of Heritage Christian College in conjunction with the School of Agriculture of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), has trained thirty-seven (37) supervisors of the Hpw Fresh and Dry Company Ltd. Adeiso in the Eastern region. They were trained in Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) and Total Quality Management.
The program was to help the supervisors of the company to address quality issues in their production processes. The 2-day training was facilitated by Prof. Ernest Ekow Abano, an Associate Professor of the School of Agriculture at UCC and an expert in fruit processing and food science.
After the training, the supervisors indicated that they had benefitted in a number of ways. These included the improved knowledge of the production processes, skills in enhancing the quality of products, reducing the risk in the production processes as well as production floor accidents, and minimising the cost of operations as a result of increased efficiency.
The programme is one of several programmes run by Centre for Professional Studies of Heritage to provide skills training services and also helping to address the capacity problems faced by Corporate institutions.
