Listeria Prevention Workshop Western Cape

This workshop is brought to you in association with



 The spotlight is on the South African food industry more than ever before! Since the news of the identification of the listeria ST6  strain in food production facilities in the country, consumer confidence has been rocked, and the media is hunting for news. The outbreak has topped the charts as the largest outbreak in history with almost a thousand reported cases and more than 180 deaths, and government is threatening severe repercussions:


The minister said companies in the food value chain who failed to adhere to South African and international food safety standards and are found culpable in the world's largest listeriosis outbreak, will be punished.  "Laws are available to take people to account and they are going to be punished in terms of the available legislation," said Motsoaledi.


The food industry has to get their house in order, and ensure that they are compliant in every way, not only to avoid governmental wrath, but also because it is the right thing to do, and could prevent loss of life.


To help provide as much relevant and expert information on listeria in your food facility, and how to prevent it, Food Focus will be running a Listeria Prevention Workshop in Cape Town, in association with Entecom.  We aim to keep costs as reasonable as possible to ensure the event is accessible for all stakeholders in the WC food industry.


SAAFoST will also be running their Listeria Workshop in Cape Town on the 10th April - you can find out more about their event here:
