Project Description

This is a Leonardo da Vinci project, Transfer of Innovation action framed within the 2010 call of the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP). Programme funded by the European Commission in order to foster interchange, cooperation and mobility between education and training systems within the EU. The modality of this project has been designed to facilitate the adaptation of existing innovative practices to be used in new settings, through working with transnational partners.

The developed training materials explain how cheese production is becoming more complex since the cheese industry is increasingly dependent on the application of science and technology. As a result of this increased complexity consumer risks have increased associated with raw materials, farming practices, and production processes. The vocational training of the staff involved in the production of milk on farms or during the manufacture of several dairy products in the industry is therefore a priority to provide products with the highest level of safety and quality for the consumer.
The developed project provides an overview of the dairy and cheese sector, and aims to familiarize students with the risks affecting food safety.
