  • DWC FoodTech is pleased to offer two courses dealing with UHT-processing and aseptic packaging.
  • The Approved Persons Course for UHT Processing and Aseptic Packaging. This is an advanced program suitable for those involved with the development, validation, operation and control of UHT processing and aseptic packaging of low-acid and acid foods and beverages.
  • Operators and Supervisors Course for UHT Processing and Aseptic Packaging. This program is suitable for those involved in (or have an interest in) UHT processing and/or aseptic packaging but do not require the advanced level of training required to determine, validate or verify the adequacy of heat treatments. These courses can be presented on-site at manufacturers’ plants or at regional centres throughout Australia, New Zealand and the ASEAN region. For more information please contact DWC FoodTech at info@dwcfoodtech.com.au or dwcfoodtech.com.au.
