One of the purposes of the activity is to form a pool of Food Safety trainers who can be tapped by the industries and micro small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the region by using a harmonized training manual.

The training manual includes topics about Food Safety Hazards, Basic Food Hygiene, and current Good Manufacturing Practices.

It also aims to capacitate stakeholders in the use of science and risk-based analysis in compliance with food safety regulations, promote food safety awareness, and address food safety issues and concerns in Northern Mindanao.

The trainers are expected to conduct a series of Food Safety trainings for MSMEs, hotels, restaurants, street vendors, and other food handlers.

The primary objective of the FSRCB-10 is to promote and enhance collaboration between the various government agencies, the local government units (LGUs), and the private sector in addressing food safety concerns and issues in the region per RA 1061.
