This interactive online course is the essential tool for professionals working in the global food industry. Learn how to mitigate the risks of emerging antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and how to practically apply these principles in your role to support public health and animal welfare.

Learn how antibiotics work and how they are categorised, how resistant bacteria emerge and spread, how to measure medicine usage in food-producing species, and how to act as an agent of change.

This course is aimed at retailers, food service businesses, suppliers, processors and farming integrations.

These are excellent resources that will help to elevate the level of understanding and appreciation of this complex topic within the food supply chain globally. The end result should be that food businesses are able to develop sensible, effective policies on antibiotic stewardship that never compromise animal health and welfare or food safety
