It is a digital platform (web and android based) that has launched a self-paced course on, safe practices for retailers and retail workers handling food and safe practices for micro, small and medium enterprises manufacturing food during Covid-19 pandemic.

The courses entail food safety compliance training to limit contamination risks. These courses are prepared in association with FSSAI, FICCI, NIFTEM and various industry partners. The duration of the course completion is 90 minutes, at the end of which a certificate will be issued to each participant.

We are constantly developing supporting learning resources to create skilled manpower in the industry. The courses focus on imparting sufficient knowledge around industry preparedness to deal with the Covid-19 situation.”

“Moreover, we continue to seek support from the industry bodies like FSSAI, FICCI & NSDC to keep up with the momentum of learning and building a strong community,” he added.

Sunil Marwah, CEO, FICSI, highlighted the importance of giving a clear understanding to the workers of unorganised retail and manufacturing sector handling food.

He says that following these guidelines can help in mitigating the risk of spreading Covid-19 and have consumer’s trust. We emphasise on creating awareness through interactive learning because “Jaanega Bharat toh Safe Rahega Bharat.”

The digital platform will also have NSQF aligned job roles for learners such as baking technician, pickle making technician and jam jelly ketchup processing technician.
