The company’s technical director, Jeremy Hall, via his role as chairman of the British Poultry Council Processing Committee, has for some time been involved in re-defining the role of the Poultry Inspector Assistant (PIA) and developing the PIA training syllabus. The Processing Committee, together with the Food Standards Agency and the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health, has now structured a syllabus for PIAs that gives them 100 hours of theoretical and practical training in food safety, bird welfare and post mortem inspection of poultry.
