The Federation of Oils, Seeds and Fats Associations (FOSFA) will be holding its trade education courses again at the Royal Holloway University in Egham, Surrey, UK.

The FOSFA Basic Introductory Course – to be held on 3-8 September – is designed for those with little or no knowledge within the oilseeds, oils and fats industries and builds an understanding of the elementary aspects of the trade such as FOSFA contracts, contract referred documents, shipping, trade finance, technical matters and dispute resolution.

The Middle Managers Course will be held on 18-23 June 2017. The week-long programme covers basic subjects including contracts, shipping and dispute resolution, and wider issues to enhance delegates’ range of experience and management skills.
