Well-informed, knowledgeable employees are among your most crucial assets when it comes to achieving food safety and quality objectives.

Mérieux NutriSciences experts work with you to develop your training strategy. Our proven tools combine up-to-date scientific and regulatory information with interactive learning techniques.  

Monthly scheduled training courses are presented at Mérieux NutriSciences’s training facilities in Midrand and Cape Town, with additional public courses presented in selected venues across South Africa and Namibia (All these courses are advertised on our website as well as per electronic newsflash e-mailed to our client database).

Where clients have several staff members to be trained, it becomes feasible to train them at their workplace. This type of training is effective, targeted and can be used to promote teamwork and motivation. This option also allows clients to choose the most suitable time and date for staff training. Should clients not have a suitable in-house venue, Mérieux NutriSciences’s training facilities could be used.

Mérieux NutriSciences has extensive experience in developing and customising training courses. Should you be interested in receiving training on a topic which we are not currently advertising, please feel free to contact us.
