Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are the operational and environmental conditions required to produce safe foods. They ensure the environment of food production promotes food safety and that all ingredients and packaging materials are handled safely. GMPs cover materials and products, premises, people, procedures, and processes. Effective training of workers to support compliance with GMP to ensure food safety is critical. Worker training and competency can vary between federally regulated meat processing facilities and the provincially regulated facilities (Fong et al. 2017). The federal government and the government of Ontario have identified this as a priority, investing $900,000 to support recruitment, retention, and innovative training initiatives in Ontario meat processing plants (Government of Canada 2021).
