In the course of the seminar the participants got the understanding of the most critical food safety management principles and of major GFSI-recognized standards and schemes: BRC, IFS, SQF, Global Aquaculture Alliance BAP, FSSC 22000. The trainees highlighted the high professional level of the trainer Julia Kryuchkova, SGS Food Audits Manager in Russia, and the practical use of the training.

We expect that this seminar in Khabarovsk will be our first but certainly not last experience in the Far East Russia, and local companies will be able to train their staff on international standards locally”.
