The general objectives of the Food Science program from ISA Lille - Graduate School of Agriculture and Bioengineering (France Agro³) is to give students:
- an international view of food safety regulations and standards, highlighting local and international specificities
- tools to assist food companies in setting up systems (HACCP, BRC,IFS, SQF, ISO 22000, FSSC 22000, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001) and to carry out audits (preparation for internal auditor certification exam)
