This Food Safety Level 2 is suitable for anyone who works in the preparation of food including those who work part-time, on a temporary basis or seasonally. Level 1 is appropriate for those who do not handle food, Level 3 for managers within catering operations.
The Food Standards Agency states that: “Food business operators are required by law, to ensure that food handlers receive appropriate supervision and instruction/training in food hygiene in line with their work activity and should enable them to handle food safely.” Our Food Safety training course covers the key areas required to meet the training needs of those working with food.
Anyone who prepares and sells food (even for one-off events) is required to make sure the food they supply is safe to eat.
The ingredients used, the premises in which the products are made, the method of production and the person making the food all have an impact on the safety and quality of the final product.
