Jennefer Griffith, Executive Director of FPHRC says “Immigrants are a substantial portion of the Canadian food and beverage processing workforce. The Council is in a unique position to provide food safety related training through this new program which will expedite the transition of new immigrants to exciting employment opportunities within the industry.”
