O que eu aprenderei?

A one-of-a-kind educational experience in Canada, the Butchery and Charcuterie Management certificate will provide you with comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge in meat science, processing and management - all required for entry into this rapidly growing trade.

At SAIT, we continue to set the standard for excellence in culinary education. The Butchery and Charcuterie Management program is another example of training based on what employers are looking for and preparing our students for success in the global hospitality industry.

During this full-time one-year certificate program, you will work in state-of-the-art facilities as you gain practical skills in value-added butchery, carcass identification and breaking, sanitation and much more. Specific to charcuterie, you will learn extensive curing and product creation methods for salamis, sausages, prosciutto, cured and smoked products along with a host of other proteins. We focus on sustainability and help you understand where the product came from, how to process it and how to get the most value from it.

By preparing proteins for our dynamic Market Place at SAIT and the new student-run butcher shop, you will also learn how to properly cut and present proteins, as well as gain skills in customer service and business management.
