  • Food safety and hygiene govern everything that you will do within the catering industry. No matter how great a product may taste, if it has not been prepared, stored and served to a legally-set standard its consumption could lead to injury, illness, or even death.

    But don’t worry, good food safety and hygiene practices aren’t all that difficult to follow; just stick to the rules set out in this course and your kitchen will remain a happy, healthy, safe place to work.

    By the end of this course, (and the successful completion of the end of course assessment), you will have received all of the appropriate training required to work legally, safely and hygienically in a food-handling environment.

    • Cafés
    • Hospitality
    • Tourism
    • Supermarkets

    ...and many more besides.
