The Food Safety Professionals Association was set up in 2007 with the intention of bringing together the best independent food safety/hygiene professionals operating on the island of Ireland in an attempt to nurture and improve the standards of food safety advice and training available to the Hospitality, Catering, retail and Industrial sectors in Ireland. To this end, very stringent entry criteria were devised for all persons hoping to become members of the FSPA. The membership has embarked on becoming a FETAC accredited provider. This process is long and arduous and requires the full co-operation of all members. Once this is achieved it will be of great benefit to all members of the FSPA.
Over the years since the Launch of the FSPA in Dublin Castle the association has held many continual development sessions for its members. Food Allergens and intolerances, Nano Technology, Marketing and FETAC course development were amongst the topics covered. The association has given presentations at Catex and has been represented at other conferences such as the EHOA conference and the Good Food Ireland conference.
