Antimicrobial Stewardship in the Food Chain: Tackling the Global Challenge of Antibiotic Resistance

Created specifically for professionals working in the global food industry, the Antimicrobial Stewardship in the Food Chain online course will equip course participants with the knowledge and skills needed to make a meaningful contribution to the problem of antibiotic resistance – an issue described as one of ‘the greatest challenges facing humanity’.

Antimicrobial Resistance is one of the key global concerns of our time, affecting animal health, human health, food security and farming practices in all regions. The roles of food industry professionals are highly critical in controlling the use of antibiotics in food-producing animals, and therefore mitigating the risks of AMR emergence. By setting policy on antibiotic stewardship for food supply chains, we have the opportunity to drive responsible antibiotic usage in millions of food-producing animals.

Course Content

  • How antibiotics work and how they are categorised
  • How resistant bacteria emerge and spread
  • Measurement of medicine usage in food-producing species
  • Animal welfare dimensions of antibiotic resistance
  • How you can act as an ‘agent of change’

Regenerative Agriculture: How to Get Started

Through FAI’s own regenerative farming journey, we have observed that transitioning farms to regenerative agriculture requires a very different strategy to the conventional ways that supply chain managers have implemented sustainability measures in the past. It requires managers to take the time to understand the complexity that regenerative agriculture embraces. 

This ground-breaking course is designed to help food supply chain professionals better understand the challenges and opportunities of moving towards supply networks that actively regenerate our planet, and how they can effectively influence and drive this change. 

Learn how to adopt an agroecological approach that can reduce or remove the financially and environmentally high input costs, prevent disease, sequester carbon and buffer the effects of drought and flood – moving farms toward a more resilient and consistently productive system. 

After completing this course, you will have a solid grasp of what it means to embrace regenerative agriculture, working with rather than against nature. This course is aimed at food supply chain professionals – including executives, investors, buyers, and managers or anyone interested or involved in influencing supply chains.
