According to the Chairman,  Prof.  Dr. Abid Hasnain, the admissions for the 2nd batch will commence from March 24, 2014. This program will be highly beneficial for those who are already serving Food Industries or are interested in food exports. In Pakistan the food safety control systems are very weak. At present, the only dedicated food safety training courses being offered in Pakistan are HACCP and ISO-22000. The PGD-Food Safety and controls being very comprehensive in its contents and curriculum will be more effective in producing technically sound and academically qualified export which will strengthen the trade capacity building process of the country, create employment by enhancing exports, protect consumers by improving the safety status of foods, facilitate Pakistan’s capacity to integrate into global trade and hence improve overall economy of the country.
