A total of 606 school canteen teachers will attend the seminar-training on Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) organized by DepEd-Batangas and DOST-Batangas at Lima Park Hotel, Malvar, Batangas on Jan. 22-24.

Aiming to strengthen school canteen management of public schools in Batangas province, DepEd Batangas Medical Unit, DOST CALABARZON and DOST Batangas staff will facilitate the three-day activity with discussions on basic food hygiene, food hazards, handwashing, cross-contamination prevention, personal hygiene, food contact surfaces, pest control and food preparation.

Categorization of snack foods that may be sold in school canteens, including the frequencies on selling them in reference to snack's nutrition facts and to DepEd's Administrative Order, will also be discussed during the training.

According to DepEd, school canteens serve as a vital source of nutrition education which reinforce what kids learn in the classroom, thus it considers school canteen management training relevant for teachers who are exposed to food preparation to assure food safety.

Food safety is one of the flagship programs of the DOST CALABARZON, hence DepED Batangas called for partnership with DOST Batangas to help provide school canteen teachers with training on GMP.
