BRCGS Category Learning Module - Alcohol


Category: Tag:


BRCGS have for some time developed and delivered auditor competency requirements and assessment criteria for each of the product categories.  Core technical knowledge sets are required for most categories and product specific knowledge.

This course has been designed to provide an overview of alcohol processing, category 13 of the BRCGS Food Safety Standard, to ensure knowledge is relevant and up-to-date. This knowledge will be assessed in the category exam.

This course can be used as introductory training for manufacturing or retail technical and quality staff, to enhance their knowledge of the processes and food safety controls in alcoholic drinks production.

The course has been split into four sections covering:

  • Brewing
  • Cidermaking
  • Winemaking
  • Distilled products

The aim of the Course is to focus the audit on the most probable hazards that occur in these processes.
