You asked, we listened, and now, we can deliver: The new Food Safety Professional eLearning Premium Library bundle of courses is available through Alchemy Manager!


Many of you requested more advanced, professional-level courses for individuals who administer, participate, or contribute to food safety programs. Utilizing the decades of experience from the Alchemy Food Safety Consulting team, we designed courses broken up into modules to help engage the learner on a deeper level.

Full, in-depth descriptions on the courses can be found at the end, but first, some essential takeaways.
