Food and Drink - Good Manufacturing Practice: A Guide to its Responsible Management (GMP6), 6th Edition

£20.00

Product description

261pp. 2013. 6th ed. As new copy.



Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) refers to advice and guidance put in place to outline the aspects of production and testing that can impact the quality and safety of a product. In the case of food and drink, GMP is aimed at ensuring that products are safe for the consumer and are consistently manufactured to a quality appropriate to their intended use. Manufacturers have for several years been driving towards such goals as Total Quality Management (TQM), lean manufacturing and sustainability - GMP is bound up with theseissues. The ever-increasing interest amongst consumers, retailers and enforcement authorities in the conditions and practices in food manufacture and distribution, increases the need for the food manufacturer to operate within clearly defined policies such asthose laid down in GMP. The ability to demonstrate that GoodManufacturing Practice has been fully and effectively implemented could, in the event of a consumer complaint or a legal action,reduce the manufacturer's liability and protect them fromprosecution.First launched in 1986, IFST's Good Manufacturing PracticeGuide has been widely recognized as an indispensable reference workfor food scientists and technologists. It sets out to ensure thatfood manufacturing processes deliver products that are uniform inquality, free from defects and contamination, and as safe as it ishumanly possible to make them. This 6th edition has beencompletely revised and updated to include all the latest standardsand guidance, especially with regard to legislation-driven areassuch as HACCP.The Guide is a must have for anyone in a managerial or technicalcapacity concerned with the manufacture, storage and distributionof food and drink. It is also a valuable reference for foodeducation, training and for those involved in food safety andenforcement. Food scientists in academic and industry environmentswill value its precision, and policy makers and regulatoryorganizations will find it an indispensable guide to an importantand multifaceted area.About IFSTIFST is the leading independent qualifying body for foodprofessionals in Europe and the only professional body in the UKconcerned with all aspects of food science and technology.
