Coles launches academy in food quality assurance

Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 26th July 2011

Coles Group has partnered with leading food safety trainer Advancing Food Safety (AFS) to launch an academy offering training courses in quality management, leading to academic qualifications for participants.

The Coles Quality Academy has been opened exclusively for employees of Coles suppliers.

“The Coles Quality Academy is specifically designed to help grow quality standards and manage the cost of quality,” said Jackie Healing, Head of Quality, Policy & Governance.

The academy has been officially launched in Sydney and Melbourne and further launches will be taking place elsewhere around Australia.

This initiative by Coles follows similar overseas models. By way of comparison, McDonalds operates training institutions in the United States.
