This self-directed online course will teach the fundamentals of safety, sanitation & GMP best practices in cider and perry production.

This online course - developed by CINA instructors at Cornell's College of Agriculture & Life Sciences - is a Core Module for CINA's Advanced Certificate in Cider & Perry Production.

How can you ensure that your product is safe for consumers? How can you ensure that your workplace is safe for employees? How can you ensure that your sanitation program is adequate to prevent spoilage? How can you prove any of the above to customers or government inspectors? The modern marketplace and regulatory environment demands that cider and perry producers adopt documented, repeatable procedures to ensure that products and production environments are safe and sanitary. Fortunately, there are a number of programs that have been developed with these specific issues in mind.

This course offers an introduction to key quality, safety and sanitation terms and techniques, as well as the formal approaches that underpin modern food production. The online content will cover current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs), preventive controls, occupational safety, sanitation and record-keeping. Note that this course is taught via pre-recorded videos without a live element.
